Normally this blog is all about pretty things and people. But, given the importance of the upcoming election, I hope you'll indulge me. This article from Slate on Sarah Palin's speech (found via D.Sharp) is very interesting-- remember diagramming sentences in jr. high English?
On a more serious note, I do think that it is imporant to really know what's going on in this campaign. I recommend this article (and the New Yorker in general) for the thoroughness of its research on the facts. Every news outlet has some bias, but ones with a lot of fact checking are better.
