"The Lively Morgue"

The NYT, or a NYT employee, has a Tumblr that's worth a look. Looks like it's just getting started. Let's hope it keeps going.

Note to the young: a morgue in the newspaper sense is not what you might think. It is, or was, their word for an archive of clippings, back when that meant rooms full of paper in filing cabinets. No, really. We did that once.
