- Cory, who when I last checked had 376 posts to my 43, comments on the fact the KELO Issues blog to which I contributed is ending, partly because of “the low number of regular contributions.” Given that I am seventh out of the eight bloggers for number of contributions (even being outpaced by someone who quit blogging at the site nearly 10 months ago), perhaps I am partly to blame. Oh, well. It’s tough to keep things going here — and most of the posts here don’t translate easily to an “issues”- oriented blog. Still, as Cory observes, it was “generally enjoyable.”
- I’m not sure how I missed this last week but, clearly, one of the posts of the year: How to Operate the New Paper Book You Received for Christmas (via)
- Since we evidently need to fix Huck Finn, here’s some other books that need a makeover.
- Sadly, Chad Post reports that “2010 SUCKED” when it came to works in translation, with numbers down about 11 percent.
- What topped the bestseller lists when you were born? (For me, it was William Brinkley’s Don’t Go Near the Water and Robert J. Donovan’s Eisenhower: The Inside Story. I had not heard of or read either.) (via)
- T’ain’t it nice to know that when it comes to “the most controversial stuff,” Supreme Court Justice Scalia doesn’t “even have to read the briefs, for Pete’s sake.”
January, month of empty pockets!
