This is interesting: if you google (yes, that’s a verb) “James Doolittle,” you’ll come up with a whole bunch of results for General James H. Doolittle, who was an aviator popularized for leading the first American counter-strike against the Japanese after Pearl Harbor in World War II (Alec Baldwin played him in the movie Peal Harbor). I’m mentioned somewhere on page three.
But, if you google “James Doolittle alcohol,” my blog holds not only the first hit, but also the second.
The question is, do I have a drinking problem, or is James Doolittle just such a unique name that only one of us is mentioned on a website also containing the word alcohol? (Should I mention that I’ve been drinking tonight?)
Maybe the real question should be who was it out there that initially linked my name to alcohol in a google search, thus alerting my shortstat plugin to the fact that such a reference was out there?
