When I woke up this morning and went online while kids were getting up and ready for school, the first this I saw was this tweet by abelpharmboy:
Two articles on @BoraZ in today’s Durham Herald-Sun. Will post links later. Herald-Sun has pain in the ass registration to access site.
So, I went out and got a hardcopy of the paper, and also looked at it online (feel free to use login: coturnixfan and password: boraborabora to see the articles, thanks Bill). The first article starts on the front page of Chapel Hill Herald (I think that if you buy the paper in Durham, Chapel Hill Herald is inside, but if you buy it in Chapel Hill, it becomes the front section) with this picture of me.

With those kind of numbers, there’s obviously some healthy competition in the online community. Zivkovic’s decision to name his site “A Blog Around the Clock” was strategic. It’s no accident that the name starts with the letters “a” and “b.”………
………….”It’s no accident,” he said, smiling. “I am very, very devious.”
