Writer Paul Collins has a cool piece on Slate about the ubiquitous yellow pages. It's funny: I feel like I'm doing something anachronistic when I look up a business in the yellow pages, or when I mindlessly replace the old yellow pages with the new ones delivered to my doorstep. Yet I do it anyway.

My crazy-sharp friend Heather Wax is doing some blogging about the intersection of science and religion. Check it out here. And finally, jumping back to language because language is my life right now, check out the not-so-subtle jab at Bill Clinton in this LA Times blog. A rather amusing grammatical slip, but also interesting that the blogger chose to keep rubbing Clinton's nose--and readers' eyes--in it.
