Reply of the Zaporozhian Cossacks — When you absolutely, positively have to tell someone off. (Via [info]danjite.)

Chromoxylographic CodingWhile taking Terry Belanger's course on book illustration processes at the Rare Book School this summer, I became enchanted with chromoxylography: the printing process in which a color image is built up from the successive printing of multiple woodblocks, each responsible for a single color. Not only are color wood engravings beautiful but -- as I discuss a bit below -- the process of making them strikes me as a wonderful metaphor for how we code. (Via Daily Idioms, Annotated.)

‘Sixth sense’ in human brains mapped by researchers — Cool story, misleading headline. Also, the URL could use a little manual editing.

Blind people are granted gun permits in Iowa — More guns means more safety!!! 30,000 deaths of other people every year is a small price to pay for your illusion of security, after all. So why not let blind people feel safe, too?

Seeing threats, feds target instructors of polygraph-beating methods — This is, uh, alarming. (Via David Goldman.)

Terry Belanger was a professor of mine in library school at Columbia University in 1971-2. He remained a colleague and mentor after he went to UVA and began the Book Arts program there. It is just wonderful to see his name in Link Salad. I live in near-constant delight of the connections between and among those I care about.
