Catching up

Here are some highlights from what awaited me in the blog newsreader when I got back from New York:

• From kung fu squirrels to mysterious county inspectors, Geoff Duncan is having far too much fun checking out his new neighborhood in North Seattle.

John Hedtke has discovered an online etymology dictionery.

• A Gardener's Notebook ponders why some L.A. neighbors have painted their lawn.

• Clive Thompson's superb blog Collision Detection notes that an English college student has compiled a comprehensive online guide to destroying the earth.

• Amazon changed its user interface (at the item level; check out any of the books). An improvement on what was becoming an increasingly chaotic page. While you're there, have a look at my cousin Earl Rovit's new book Hemingway and Faulkner in Their Times.
