Brilliant trolling by the NYT:

"As working parents, she and her husband, Dan Yashiv, 42, a music producer, do not have time to prepare such fare. And their nanny, from Wisconsin, does not always know the difference between quinoa and couscous." 
A chef-run consulting service teaches nannies there's more to cooking than mac and cheese.

The only reason I ever want to use the word "quinoa" is when I'm kicking somebody's ass in Scrabble.

I just became a LinkedIn connection with my old punk rock friend of 30+ years, Bill Stevenson, a Baltimore tattoo artist. I typically ignore all LinkedIn recommendations, but Bill has received a pretty delightful one: 

Anastacia Brice
Biz foundations/standards coach to amazing women. Founder/CVO: AssistU. Present, love-filled girlie-girl.

Bill's great (an understatement) at what he does--I trust him to ink me and poke holes in me, and I believe in him 100%. He's kind, gracious, funny, talented, gives expert advice on design and placement but has allowed me to do what I want to do (even when it flies in the face of what's "customary"), and, most importantly (at least to me), he's a mensch. 

And although LinkedIn would only allow me to choose three of their seven description attributes, I would have chosen all seven (great results, personable, expert, good value, on time, high integrity, and creative). Just sayin'.

"The competing visual inputs I had noticed produced some exceptional imagery, and I began to find more and start a collection.  At first, I thought they were glitches, or errors in the algorithm, but looking closer, I realized the situation was actually more interesting — these images are not glitches. They are the absolute logical result of the system. They are an edge condition—an anomaly within the system, a nonstandard, an outlier, even, but not an error. These jarring moments expose how Google Earth works, focusing our attention on the software. They are seams which reveal a new model of seeing and of representing our world - as dynamic, ever-changing data from a myriad of different sources – endlessly combined, constantly updated, creating a seamless illusion."

I am a fan of this teaching method.

I hate lobbyists, and I hate pennies. So I probably don't want to meet the Jarden Zinc lobbyist who earned $140,000 to keep the penny alive and steer $48 million in federal zinc contracts to the company.

I really want to post the old Simpsons "A World Without Zinc" class filmstrip, but Fox commits the unforgivable sin of A) not having the entire ancient archive online and B) instantly taking down anybody who does post a clip.

That's how you know I didn't write it -- I would throw Buddy into the pot, too!

Some observations after a rewatch of Slap Shot: 

1) I used to say Slap Shot was my second favorite sports movie (after The Bad News Bears). I've rewatched both in the last two months, and I think I am ready to flipflop them.

2) All three of my favorite sports movies are coach/manager-centric stories where the teams bring in unconventional ringers to lead them into the playoffs/championship game. The third is Moneyball, where the ringers are only known to sabermetricians. 

3) I like sports movies better than sports.

4) In Slap Shot, Paul Newman plays Reg Dunlop, the charming leader of a ragtag band of loser hockey players. Of all the characters Newman has played, Reg is closest in spirit to Butch Cassidy (also directed by George Roy Hill).

I love boxing movies, but I can't watch the real thing. Raging Bull, The Boxer--some of my favorite movies. Even the first Rocky is good.

I've never read any of Dan Brown's books, but I suspect this parody is pretty dead-on.  
The snobs and critics will have a field day with the US author’s latest work – but I’m not joining in.

Excellent Will Wilkinson piece on political labels influences political identity.
 
A response to Bryan Caplan...
Bryan is too modest. He has at least 17 points to spare. Seriously, Bryan has sort of wrongly inferred that my aversion to specifically political labels flows from a much more general aversion to nami...

Terrible story. Last line sums it up: "Or maybe the lesson is just don’t be black in Bellaire, Texas."
