Regular Programming Will Resume Momentarily
I have dug myself into a deep hole with a piece I’m writing. I believe I’m seeing the exit though. Half of the task, it seems, is explaining to myself why I'm bothering with it.
In the meantime here are two things I read that I thought you might as well read too.
The first, via Metafilter, is John Ruskin writing everything you need to know about the pathetic fallacy. Really, this is the last word. Until you think up something. If you do, bring it back here.
The second is Athenae’s commentary on today’s bailout of Bear Stearns by JP Morgan and the Federal Reserve. If you don’t know what that's about, well, this is a good place to start.
