Thinking about Encyclopedia Britannica, Louis C.K. and more

    • Bad form

      Louis C.K.: Not only should you not have canceled your appearance at the Radio & Television Congressional Correspondents dinner, you should’ve opened with the raunchiest Greta van Susteren joke you could muster. —Ken Miller, associate editor

    • The mad ones

      In 1979, Francis Ford Coppola bought the rights to Keruoac’s On the Road, and it’s finally hitting the big screen. The author had hoped to play his narrator, but instead, he’ll gaze down from Beat heaven on an actor who looks and sounds just like Bill Hader from Saturday Night Live .... —Erin Ryan, staff writer

    • Huh?

      The LVH marquee calls Nunsense a “Best Book Musical.” I’m not 100 percent sure what that means, but I’m 100 percent sure it doesn’t do much for me. —Rick Lax, staff writer

    • So long

      After 244 years in print, Encyclopaedia Britannica is calling it quits. The company will now focus on online editions, rather than 129-pounders. Blame Wikipedia—or thank it. —Sarah Feldberg, editor

    • Pay it forward

      To the crossing guard who waves every morning as I drive to work: Thanks, man. Puts a smile on my face every time. —Mark Adams, listings coordinator
