Friday link-dump

Things I appear not to be blogging, but want to:
  • Expand transit, and all the housing nearby becomes very popular -- couldn't this become a positive feedback loop, beneficial to all concerned???
    Edit: ah, it can lead to displacing the poor and elderly. Bummer.

  • Imagine a composite photograph you wish you could see? Just make a sketch and the Internets can work their magic. Mind-blowing.

  • Gradual evolution of the angry right-wing: conservatives rewrite the Bible so that, of course, it supports their views. Parody dies, violence and hatred continue to grow. Creep-tastic.

  • More environmental arguments against beef -- putting it in terms understandable by those of use who choose transit, turn off lights, and generally try to Make Things Better. Sigh.

  • Was more than surprised to hear about the Nobel Peace Prize -- some sense is made of it here, as well as telling contrasts between the reactions at home and abroad.

Have a good weekend, all!
