As I am the only one in my household (other than the dog) who has not read HP7 (I think I dropped off after or about book 4), I’ve had time to gather a few odds and ends from the ether.
- One of the best prescriptions I’ve heard about.
- Gee, really???? (or duh!!!) (Via.)
- According to Discover magazine, which deals with “Science, Technology and the Future,” SF is obsolete. (Via.)
- Even though it has suspended its print edition, the wonderful American Heritage remains online. Last week, it ran a column on 10-year-anniversary of the death knell of the Wal-Mart of my youth, Woolworth’s. (Via.)
- Jon Swift examines how one Democratic presidential candidate is emboldening our enemies.
- John Scalzi comes up with the best “book reading meme” ever.
- Kudos to the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute for offering a class this fall on “the history of Islam, myths and misconceptions, and cultures within the Muslim world.”
The most aggravating thing about the younger generation is that I no longer belong to it.
