A BLOG BY ANY OTHER NAME. I'm glad Judith Warner is back as a TimesSelect bonus feature, but what's the deal with the blurb they've given her?

Judith Warner: "Domestic Disturbances"
The author's blog on modern parenting returns and will now appear every Friday."

If it appears once a week on a regular schedule, that's a column, wouldn't you say? Worse, if you read it, you'll see that the most recent "post" was on May 18. Since that's my birthday, I happen to recall clearly that that was Thursday, not Friday. The previous column was on May 11. They come out Thursday night, not Friday. Obviously, in the print world a story that closes Thursday night goes in the Friday paper, but on the Web, Thursday is Thursday is Thursday and there's no getting around it.
