Okay. You know you've spent far too much time working in libraries when you finally break down and manually rearrange your blogroll because Blogger auto-alphabetizes the list using the word "The" as the first word and you've decided that you just can't stand it anymore.

You don't have to be a librarian. Absolutely drives me bonkers.

Why can't you set up the blog titles as if they were Uniform Titles and just drop initial articles?

Somebody long ago got the bright idea of labelling our bound copies of Die Musikforschung as, well, just that. So my student workers come up to me when reshelving and say "There's no space for Die (rhymes with pie) Musikforschung." They're lucky to know what the articles are in English, I suppose...
