I read…
Drunk, and Dangerous, at the Keyboard by Alex Williams
“The experimental program requires any user who enables the function to perform five simple math problems in 60 seconds before sending e-mails between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. on weekends.”
Sorry, Dad, I’m voting for Obama by Christopher Buckley
“Necessity is the mother of bipartisanship. And so, for the first time in my life, I’ll be pulling the Democratic lever in November. As the saying goes, God save the United States of America.”
The Global Cities Index from Foreign Policy
“The world’s biggest, most interconnected cities help set global agendas, weather transnational dangers, and serve as the hubs of global integration. They are the engines of growth for their countries and the gateways to the resources of their regions. In many ways, the story of globalization is the story of urbanization.”
A Six-Pack of Joes from BBC News
“The next president of the United States will not be called Joe, but Joes of various kinds have been all over the news from the campaign trail.”
The Comprehensive Argument Against Barack Obama by Guy Benson and Mary Catherine Ham
“As the saying goes, if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Questions abound: Is this man prepared to be president? Does he hold mainstream values and policy preferences? Who has influenced his thinking, and where does he want to take the country? Has he been honest with the people from whom he seeks votes?”
It’s hard out here for a Mom… by Susie from the blog What Was I Thinking?
“So, yea, ever since her third grade teacher had her reading about how messy ejaculating boys are, I’ve tried to screen teacher-recommended books. (…) I guess my somewhat pessimistic view that there is no one who is going to look out for my kid’s well-being the way I do, was reinforced (…) there is nothing in the world more precious to me than her brain (…)”
And in Norwegian…
Om å gjøre det slutt med andre enn kjæresten by VirrVarr
“Når du begynner å date noen, kan du backe ut. Når du begynner å henge ut med noen, har du ingen høflig retrettmulighet.”
