Aftermath of Canadian blogger Jeremy Wright’s ordeal at the border

So, Jeremy Wright, a Canadian blogger had a business meeting in NYC recently. But, he got stopped at the border, subjected to a body cavity search, and then prevented from entering the USA (Home of the Free™). See this blog entry by Neville Hobson for details, and links to Jeremy’s blog.

Jeremy wrote an end-of-story post for his blog, which has gotten many comments, among them this comment by a former Soviet is telling.


Technorati Cosmos link

Well, now: that didn’t work, did it? The following works, and is easier:


<a href="http://www.technorati.com/cosmos/search.html?rank=&sub=mtcosmos&url=<$MTEntryPermalink$>"><img src="https://drauh.typepad.com/blog/images/technorati_favicon.png" /></a>

While you’re at it, don’t forget to modify the “Individual Archives” template, as well. (Thanks to Laura@TypePad Help.)

Well, I got tired of not having Technorati cosmos links on a per-post basis. So, I figured out just enough Javascript to hack something to put in my TypePad “Main Index Template”:


<script language='JavaScript' type='text/javascript'>
<!--
var where = window.location;
var loc = where.href;
var technofront = "<a href=\"http://www.technorati.com/cosmos/search.html?rank=&sub=mtcosmos&url=";
var technoback = "\"><img src=\”http://drauh.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/technorati_favicon.png\"></a>";
document.write(technofront, loc, technoback);
// --></script>
