As I catch up on a few things following my return, here’s some more traditional (i.e., non-Springsteen) marginalia
- I understand some of the rationale and the impact of the digital age, but there’s just something inherently wrong with the concept of emptying a library of books. (NYT article – registration required).
- A story in the Argus while I was gone led me to take the political typology test used connection with a recent report on political ideologies done by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press survey. Guess what? I’m a liberal. I’m glad that’s confirmed. Otherwise, I might not never have known.
- I also learned this week that I’m nearing the perfect age to write a best-seller. (Via Collected Miscellany). Guess I better quit my day job soon and start cranking one out.
- Speed-reading with Bush. (Via Blog of a Bookslut).
We human beings do real harm. History could make a stone weep.
