In Google Reader, my feed-reader of choice, I accumulate digital curios, gems, and passing oddities a-plenty, and often I designate the really special treasures as such by clicking “Add Star.” Trouble is, I am a pack-rat when it comes to hoarding away the starred items. Stars and the items they make twinkle are abundant; they pile up and up and up. Somehow G.R. keeps stashing them away as “saved”–logging them into my own special, if buried, collection. I need a system for releasing the starred items from their vault. And so, an installment of “Starred Items”:

Even now they are not easy for me to un-star.
