[links] Link salad for a travel day

All 120 Crayon Names, Color Codes and Fun Facts — Mmm. Art. Which flavor tasted best? (Thanks to lt260.)

A crusade to edit America — The Editing Guy strikes. Prescriptivists 'r us. Though I certainly share the twitch. (Thanks to garyomaha.)

The future of books — The interface on this site is confusing and annoying, but click on the second image. The little slide show which follows is pretty cool. (Thanks to willyumtx.)

Taking Apart the Livescribe PulseTechnology Review on a very smart pen. Though my favorite bit was this comment about the special, patterned paper: "Each printed page has its own unique pattern — actually, a unique portion of a single, non-repeating pattern big enough to cover Europe and Asia."

How Hillary Can Still Win — A short video about the mathematics of electability, which nicely explains the Clinton campaign strategy. (Thanks to willyumtx.)

Limbaugh on Republicans — "We don't riot. We don't burn our cars. We don't burn down our houses. We don't kill our children. We don't do half the things the American left does." Speaking as a member of the American left, I can tell you it's just not a Saturday night if I don't set fire to Nuevo Rancho Lake and threaten the_child with grievous bodily harm. I have to ask my conservative friends: when the most visible conservative in the American media says stuff like this, how can the rest of us not think conservatives are simply crazy?
