There's a new addition to the 'must see' set of links to the left. It's Arts & Letters Daily, not so much a site as a gateway to a bunch of fascinating articles. The links are ordered under three categories; Articles of Note (typically shorter stuff), New Books (book reviews) and Essays and Opinion (longer stuff). Before I say anything else, I would like to point out that the site design is very clean and effective. You can find everything easily.
The articles are heart and soul of the site with such a wonderful variety of topics. With the anniversary of "Electric Kool-Aid Test" and "Selfish-Gene" there have a number of articles on those and their lasting effects, but the variety is wonderful. I have seen and read articles on "A Clockwork Orange," the economics of Fair Trade Coffee and the spat between Hume and Rousseau. If you have a half hour or so, check it out. You'll probably find something that piques your interest and make you think.
