More Misc. Items

My Weekend-of-the-Fourth tasks include laundry, cleaning, yardwork, going through stacks of stuff, SSDW.

It looks like previously blogged-about flag sophist Randy "Duke" Cunningham got a friendly visit from the FBI the other day. At my work, I recently declined the gift of a shirt from one of our vendors due to the possible conflict of interests (or actually, the appearance thereof) that might ensue. However, Cunningham has been living part-time on the luxury yacht of one of his vendors (i.e. a defense contractor). But, I bet the yacht at least has a nice big flag on it. More on Congressman Cunningham here. (p.s. - Even if you usually skip links, click that last one.)

NYT blogoshphere-for-beginners article, Blogs 101.

I finished "The Well-Educated Mind" and started "Mozart in the Jungle" yesterday. "W-EM" comments to follow, "MITJ" reviews here and here via A&LD. Also, it looks like Ms. Tindall's fellow North Carolina highbrows didn't quite grasp the tawdry nature of her memoir.

Reason Magazine's Tim Cavanaugh with a libertarian's review of LOTD. Be sure to read the extra comments.

Comments on Joshua Chamberlain (we are at the tail end of the Gettysburg anniversary right now). Last year I read this book on the semi-parallel lives of Chamberlain and Confederate officer William Oates.

Col. Joshua Chamberlain, 20th Maine Infantry Regiment

Thank you for the links to Duke and Tim's reviews! Have a great Fourth! Enjoy burning that flag with sparklers while you can :-)
