It’s been busy. Most of these I’ve previously tweeted and/or Facebooked, but hey, not all of you follow me in those places, right?
I was intending to extol the virtues of Richard Thompson’s Cul de Sac, but Shaenon Garrity has done the job better than I would’ve.
Here’s Robin Wasserman being smart and interesting about a bunch of things including her new book. Find out what she characterizes as “Lumpen and rag-tag.”

It looked even sadder after a few more days’ worth of rain. It’s gone now.
