- Halloween in the Time of Cholera
Pre-1940s Halloween photographs. These costumes are so much better than "Sexy Mustard." (via The Morning News)
- The Books of the States
Of course I couldn't resist weighing in on Ohio. (via Maud)
- Cracking Ohio's Political Code
My old high school friend Sridhar Pappu is writing fantastic election commentary at The Washington Independent, much of it focusing on our old state.
- Mourning Old Media’s Decline
I used to visit my grandparents on my way home from school. The Christian Science Monitor was always sitting on their front table; it was possibly the first newspaper I read with any regularity that didn't include funny pages.
- It's Nice That: CALLIE SHELL
A photographer on the road with Obama. Also: I loved that he cleaned up after himself before leaving an ice cream shop in Wapello, Iowa. He didn’t have to.
- Where are the Renaissance Women?
More bloggers should be writing intelligent, thoughtful, worthy things like this. Including me.
*Sigh.* I guess... Though don't expect most of it to be thoughtful or worthy.
