I've been busy reading a Lord Peter Wimsey mystery, so I have not been reading my newspaper. They are piled high by the door, still in their plastic sleeves. Meanwhile the count of unread articles in my "Arts & Letters" tab in my Google Reader is crossing 400. So I have a lot to catch up on. And this clippings section will be necessarily short.
+ Above: Can you wear only 6 pieces of clothing for one whole month? Would anyone notice? (NYTimes)+ That's what I call upcycling: 18th-Century Ship Found at Trade Center Site. (The photos are awesome!) (NYTimes)
+ This week I spent my dinners eating in the dark. Why? Someone had turned off the over-head light fixture without the light switch, and I couldn't be bothered to change the bulbs. Not my shining moment. Have you ever thought about how artificial light has changed our lives? (Washington Post)
+ You all know how much I love farmer's markets--not only is the produce DELICIOUS, but you also know that your money is going directly to the producers, and I love talking with the farmers. But, goodness gracious, what's the point if it is just a urbanite hipster movement? (Washington Post)
+ Spoon and I are going to the Nazi Propoganda exhibit in a couple weeks at the Holocaust Museum. Here's some US propoganda, from the Library of Congress. (Also, below.)
