No Nish, No Crrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiiie

And here I was going to just post this simple 'lil story which makes me think of Mr. Skittles over at Body English, even though I was passed out by the time Mr. Skittles was at Body English, but that's a story for another day.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Minnesota Vikings cornerback Cedric Griffin was freed on $50 bail after being arrested early Sunday in downtown Minneapolis and charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct, authorities said.

Griffin, 24, was released from the Hennepin County jail at 4:45 a.m.

Two witnesses told KSTP-TV that the Vikings cornerback was thrown out of the Spin nightclub for not pulling up his pants. The club has a dress code requiring that pants not sag below the waist.

The witnesses said Griffin then had a dustup with bouncers and police before being taken away in handcuffs.

But then, when I logged on, I saw this little ditty on the home page which must come as welcomed news for Nish In Cage himself. To wit:

Now you can blog in Hindi

Our friends Anupama and Nitin have posted on the Google blog about the Hindi transliteration feature that they added to Blogger:

Enabling the transliteration option allows you to type out Hindi words using phonetically equivalent English script, and see the words getting transformed into the corresponding Devanagari script. The plus is that you now don't need to learn complicated mappings from English alphabet combinations to Hindi letters. That means you really don't need to worry about WeiRD UpPerCasEing to get the right Hindi spellings.
To get started, enable Hindi transliteration here (or by going to Settings > Basic). We have a help article explaining how it works, and a thread on the Blogger Help Group to talk about it.
