It’s the season of retrospectives and clip shows.  Slow news days mean dipping into the back catalog and disguising it as the Year in Review.  So I present ten of my favorite posts of 2008.  Feel free to vote for one of these or nominate your own in the comments.  From recent to not so recent…

  1. When Frida didn’t meet Lee at SFMoMA – pondering the connections between Lee Miller and Frida Kahlo
  2. Rockport shoe ad bait and ditch – the quest for imaginary shoes
  3. Cheesed off in Davis Square – the quest for the perfect cheese sandwich
  4. San Francisco in six shades of blue– photos from fog city
  5. What wood you say is the future of radio? – the future of public radio
  6. Fried Chicken White Wine Blind Tasting– just what it sounds like
  7. Leaving newspapers on the train: littering or sharing? – pondering litter on the train; this one provoked my favorite comment ever
