basfa has posted their best novel Hugo recommendations at hugo_recommend — I'm pleased to see they liked Mainspring Powell's | Amazon | Audible ].

Philip K. Dick’s YA Novel

Calvin and Hobbes on the true nature of librarians

Minds on Fire: Open Education, the Long Tail, and Learning 2.0 — A different approach to post-primary education. (Ganked from Guru's Handbook.)

Shorpy with a 1938 photo of Omaha

Shariah-compliant hedge funds on the rise

The Mac and Cheese index is up — Apparently an indicator of recession. (Or possibly expanded college enrolment?)

Christians Wrong About Heaven, Says Bishop — He's an Anglican, what does he know about Christianity?

Rush Limbaugh considers fund raising for Hillary — When self-parody descends into self-parody. (I shudder to say that his underlying point is one I actually agree with — no one in America could unite the Republican party like Hillary Clinton.)
