UPDATED: Apologies. I am on deadline for KCET and “The week that was” is again postponed. For those who didn’t check it out last week, please accept as an apology a link to this delicious nugget from the UK’s Daily Telegraph about the 18th century British peer Lord Rokeby. Click on the rendering from the UK’s National Portrait Gallery to read Hazel Davis’s delightful sketch of the “original hipster,” a locavore who built public drinking fountains then paid neighbors to use them.
