The side-benefit of dating Jewish girls in this silly city: my Words With Friends gameplay has become much better!

Another Day

 I'm so proud. I'm smarter than Miss America.

 Does it make me callous that I'd like people to compare the design/interface of different major media news websites' "Special Coverage" pages? ABCNews.com | CBSNews.com | MSNBC.com | CNN.com | NYTimes.com | WashingtonPost.com | BBC.co.uk. (Here's mine, but frankly it's feeble by comparison.)

 A while ago, I used radio to make a point about why free internet content would survive. I made a passing reference to alt-weeklies lending more proof to my theory. OJR has penned the article basically summarizing the points I never got around to making.

 The stories you can be thankful you missed. Condit? Yates? Poundstone? Who?

 I'm going to link to it, even though I haven't read it it yet, cuz I trust it will be interesting: Clay Shirky, "In Defense of Cities."

 Christopher Hitchens can certainly be a bitch, can't he?

 To Howard Zinn: "What would you do if you were president?" The answer.

 Three supposed pacifists who no longer are: 1, 2, 3.

 No one ever could get Conrad right.

 Warning: Geek interface stuff: "Contextual dynamic searching." That's what I'm calling it. I'm intrigued by this sort of web page search that generates "more stories like this one." I noticed that the NYTimes.com just added similar functionality, in the "Related Articles" box.

That's wasn't so bad, was it?
