Basically a nice sampling of what I've been reading:
1. Superhero Worship in the Atlantic:
Once the province of Garbo and Astaire, movie glamour now comes from Superman, Spider-Man, and Storm.
2. Writers from the Telegraph UK debate, Can men write romantic novels?
Should we even be having such a moronic conversation? Of course not. But, since we are, I must read it.
3. CS Monitor's Stacy A. Teicher reports on the Higher Ed panel and their proposals.
4. Stephen Metcalf's review of the new Greil Marcus sure makes me want to see for myself.
5. Razib on Gene Expressions explains that story about the black and white twins and more. I'm a science-dummy, but I tried to hang, and ended up enjoying.
6. And on torture and The Military Commissions Act of 2006:
This is What Waterboarding Looks Like, Sayonara, Checks and Balances, and Why the Torture Bill Matters.
I'll admit it: I'm an unpatriotic liberal right now.
