Short takes . . .

When I read Blogos, or Life as a Book, or the Lady Z, I am reminded of why I enjoy reading blogs, “for fun,” even if they’re not my own.  Especially because they’re not my own.

Greg at Slawkenbergius  has a nice post up about Pale Fire‘s affinities with eighteenth-century satire. 

Mercurius Politicus tells us why committee work in the seventeenth century was just as boring as it is in the twenty first.  

I also found an interesting exchange In Socrates’ Wake over whether “philosophy provides any answers?”  Apparently, the answer is “No, not really, but thanks for asking.”

Have a good weekend,
