8 plus ones
Ari Consul: Moar Lithwick article updates please! Like this: http://www.slate.com/id/2301236/pagenum/all/#p2. Even if your picture shows you in elegant repose, assuming u are actually very busy doing awesome journalizing but please do post links to latest and greatest. Kthx. P.S. tip: don't go overboard and post questions about nose-picking like Farhad Manjoo.
Erika Nesse: I very much appreciated your recent article about the torture-by-mistake case against Rumsfeld. Everyone should read that. (Everyone: go read. http://www.slate.com/id/2301176/)
Google+ is what we're collectively making of it I guess. The rumor is that we're more civilized than those other social networks, but I'm not sure if you can count on that.
