Seems like I have missed

Seems like I have missed a lot in the last few days when I was brought to my knees by some awful flu. A quick recap, and then on to some original posts:

A.) Lileks is a genius, but you already knew that if you have come here before. I love Mr. Lileks, and this takedown of some jackass Eurotrash writer is one of the most linked things in the history of the web. It is a must-read.

B.) Ken Layne is a genius, and should be the new editor of Slate. This point-by-point factual evisceration of the scummy recording industry is simply more proof of the obvious need for him to be a top editor of something.

BTW- Thanks for all the get well e-mails.
