Less than two weeks after hatching, the two dove chicks in the nest on our porch are all grown up, and this afternoon they flew away. I confess to a touch of empty nest syndrome.

Meanwhile, my friends at the blog Literally, A Web Log have discovered the best misuse of “literally” in a long, long time:

“When you take a look at Britney Spears and her behavior, it’s very frightening,” Dr. Timothy Brantley, a PhD who educates patients on the power of food, told the tabloid TV show Access Hollywood. “She’s a person who’s completely addicted to sugar. This is like heroin for a junkie. She’s literally on a roller coaster to hell.”
