Insufferable -- Vanity Fair 1/18/12

The Harvard Crimson — Blessings in Disguise By Alec Guinness Alfred A. Knopf 225 pages A LEC GUINNESS MADE a career of bringing dignity to mediocrity. Although a contemporary and a rightful companion of the great British actors of this century, no one ever seems to mention Sir Alec in their company.

The Harvard Crimson — Batman: The Dark Knight by Frank Miller with Klaus Janson and Lynn Varley Published monthly by DC Comics; $2.95 T HE CITY sits terrified, smothered under the heat like a hostage; a city of victims. It's a filthy zoo where the animals have two legs and the media is the kids outside, squealing and giggling at the vicious capering of the beasts: "Woman explodes in subway station, film at eleven."

Denial — Lawyer Abigail Gersten is brilliant, Jewish, and a First Amendment absolutist. Professor Bernard Cooper is courtly, polite and dedicated to convincing the world that the Holocaust was a Jewish hoax. When the government prosecutes him, he turns to Abby for help. Offended by censorship in any form, she takes the case, but gets quickly drawn into a moral quagmire.

The Harvard Crimson — MANY, MANY YEARS ago, while Sally Field still flew over the bell towers of San Juan, Burt Reynolds appeared in a film called Deliverance and proved that he could act, as well as do a credible southern accent.

Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me! — Ed. Note: In lieu of our typical Sandwich Monday, Peter posts his New Orleans Food Diary. Why could we not do Sandwich Monday AND a Food Diary? Because Peter is still too full to eat.] My family and I just returned from four days in New Orleans, and like most tourists to that fair Southern city, we ate like gypsy moths in a hardwood forest.

Sandwich Monday: The Passover Sandwich — Why is this Sandwich Monday different from all other Sandwich Mondays? In honor of Passover, I introduced my non-Jewish colleagues to the wonders of the Passover lunch.

@MayorEmanuel's Acceptance Speech

Story #19: Running in Service of Another Beats Running Alone — There was a time when running the Boston Marathon seemed as likely for me as landing on the moon, and frankly, I'd rather land on the Moon, because I had already been to Boylston St.

Interviewly - Peter Sagal April 2015 - reddit AMA — I am Peter Sagal, host of NPR's "Wait, Wait... Don't Tell Me!" AMA! Hi, Peter! What is your bucket list marathon? Hi! I've never really thought about it that way. There are a bunch I'd love to do before I'm done... the big European capitols, Big Sur, the Loire (the one with wine at the rest stops).

@clmazin My roomie used to do the same thing Cruz did re: snooze button. Never thought of the crazy-glue approach, though. #kudos

Of my freshman roommates: one dropped out, one was thrown out, and one was @JessBravin.

Does anybody else read @clmazin's feed and worry what their freshman roommates might say about them?

@commiegirl1 The good news is that in response to "Kelo" many states, municipalities have increased limits on Eminent Domain. #Democracy

@commiegirl1 The City's argument was that the private development was to the general public benefit. 5 justices bought it.

@commiegirl1 It's a instance where, I think, a general faith in "good government" was misplaced.

@erbeining @NerdettePodcast If it is, then you're certainly wrong! Because you're doing that! Yup.
