a linkathon-sausage of sorts

If you're going to plagarize anyway ... .

But you should keep in mind that these days the internet has made plagiarism even easier to discover.
It can cost you your career once it's found out.

Anyone remember the Mozart effect?  How about Baby Einstein?  Class action suit.  Apparently instead of playing Mozart for your baby and showing the baby Baby Einstein DVDs it may actually be better to play a game of putting the baby in an office chair and spinning `em around 20 times a few times a week.  It has something to do with vestibular stimulation but Wenatchee The Hatchet's in that demographic that certain people claim know nothing about those things so take the spinning game with a grain of salt.  ;)  Or maybe anything about the values Americans have in parenting, which is something the author also writes about in the same venue.

Eve Tushnet has written something about pre-Raphaelite painters for The Weekly StandardIt's in two parts, both relatively short.

Justin over at the Boar's Head Tavern has some suggestions for Discernment 101 as applies to blogging.  "Might" have some thoughts about that later but not now.

In case, somehow, you didn't read their obituaries somewhere on the internet both Roger Ebert and Margaret Thatcher have died.
