1) The most unlikely place to ever find tightness--The Weekly Standard--pleasantly surprised me today when I came across a recent issue and noticed its cover story entitled, "Civilization and Its Contents." For all you non-geeks out there, Civilization is the most addictive computer strategy game ever created. I squandered many a sleepless night between semesters crushing other kingdoms with my might and bending their peasants to my will (ie, not getting laid).
The article is fairly bland, and the writer manages to weave in a subtle diatribe against atheism, but the Standard certainly deserves a tightness nod for the coverage. (And Civilization definitely deserves a bonus nod for attracting the fandom of the Fresh Prince.)
2) Has anyone else noticed that you can double-click words in the NYT and get a pop-up definition? Friggin' tight!
3) King County--which encompasses my brother's city of Seattle--just changed its official logo from one representing a slave-holding vice president to one of MLK.
I know he preached nonviolence and all, but I would not want to cross that bad mofo. (Anybody else see the resemblance?)
