Interesting Reading in the Interweb Tubes

  • The Case for Socialized Law? (“It must be that, in the eyes of the law, there is no difference between rich and poor. If the rich have more rights—if they have fuller status as citizens—then by definition everyone else has fewer rights and lesser status.”)
  • Eleanor Catton on literature and elitism (“At its best, literature is pure encounter: it resists consumption because it cannot be used up and it cannot expire.”)

Interesting Reading in the Interweb Tubes – Post Super Bowl Edition

  • Bob Dylan’s 115th Sellout (“… only when you misunderstand Dylan can you accuse him of betraying ideals he never really had–or hasn’t had in a half century.”)
  • Coca-Cola Critics Have Never Heard of ‘E Pluribus Unum’ (“…the Coke commercial was the Ghost of Christmas Future providing them a glimpse of an America that features even more people speaking languages other than English, practicing other faiths than their own and celebrating cultures they don’t understand. That scares the crap out of them.”)
