The “You Think???” Headline of the Week

Worthwhile Reading in the Interweb Tubes

  • A Crisis of Vacuum (“The exact nature of my crisis is hard to pin down. I believe, however, that it fits within the theme of: Is that all there is?”)
  • America’s Addiction to Belief (“A society of cold intellectuals is not what we need; what’s needed is a culture that places emphasis on reasoned debate.”) (via)

Bookish Linkage

  • In “City of Airheads,” LA Weekly examines the state of the Los Angeles public library system. (via)
  • At least I finished reading Freedom before The Big O “declared it a tour de force.” My view? Probably worth reading but I wouldn’t place it in the American 21st Century literary canon quite yet. Also, mucho kudos to Moby Lives for calling the O’s pick last Monday, even though many in the major media ignore that fact.

Nonbookish Linkage

I still think of myself as I was 25 years ago. Then I look in a mirror and see an old bastard and I realize it’s me.

Dave Allen, quoted in The Independent
