James Joyce fans, and other literati fans: Happy Bloomsday, June 16.

- How did Leopold Bloom get home? Irish Times reports a computer may have solved the problem; Rory McCann did the legwork — here’s the post at his blog, claiming it is, indeed possible to cross Dublin without passing a pub (but why would one want to?) (This is a great geography problem, and McCann has brought some good wiles to bear on the issue — is there a geography quiz in here? Maybe not for high school . . . )
