Matthew S. Schwartz of NPR reports on a lawsuit against the Ol' Crimson brought by one Tamara Lanier. Per Lanier "Papa Renty" is the patriarch of her family. And in a lawsuit filed Wednesday, she says Harvard is using those photos without permission — and in so doing, profiting from photos taken by a racist professor determined to prove the inferiority of black people."

Wheeling up from lower Hyde Park, I swung over to the Porter Square Bob Slates. I thought of Lily Tomlin - they don't care; they don't have to; they're closing.

A half dozen of us, all of whom had shopped the mini-chain for a long time were browsing. Everyone felt compelled to tell the two Bob Slate Stationer clerks how sorry they were the stores were closing. We didn't get any feel-good in return.

Oddly, the store had virtually nothing discounted. The calendars were 50% off, but hell, Borders did that the first week in January. Customer after customer would ask what the discounts were, only to hear that if it wasn't marked with a red slash, as nearly nothing was, it was full price.

Repeated word from the clerks was that the Church Street Harvard Square store had to clean up and get out before the end of the month, so its last day was Sunday. The bigger Mass Ave Harvard Square one would close a week later. Then all the remaining merchandise would move to Porter for the End of Paper Days.

There are flyers all over the place promoting an event called Zombie Outbreak 09. This "lurch of zombies" and "zombie hunters" is scheduled for 12:30pm on April 12, 2009. "Mass at Davis Square for a lurch to Harvard Square."

No website or contact info is listed on the flyer.

The Crimson reports a Harvard student was mugged at knifepoint Wednesday night on Divinity Avenue.

The Chronicle reports on another mugging Wednesday night involving a remorseful knifeman, who apologized to his victim after robbing him at Broadway and Armory Street.
