- I completely agree with Matthew Tiffany's defense of Eggers. I've never understood why people were so eager to take him down; Eggers is the most charitable person I've ever met. (via Return Of The Reluctant)
- The New York Times has released their 10 Best list for the year. It's a pretty good list. Of course there are lots of great books missing, there always will be, but the most obvious one for me is Peter Orner's The Second Coming Of Mavala Shikongo, hands down my favorite book of 2006.
- Maybe Dana doesn't see answers on Iraq because there aren't any.
- Senator Webb's bad manners.
