a little late on the uptake, but: useful chart of how the writers' strike affects some tv shows. except it doesn't mention Battlestar Galactica. I'm slightly annoyed with myself for even caring (at least Doctor Who shouldn't be affected...)

Tribe (on both the US's 2008 elections and tribalism's role in African politics).
It's too easy to dismiss African political stories as the legacy of tribalism. Assuming that people will behave a certain way because of ancient hatreds, of in- and out-groups denies people political agency.
found this awesome old-time music compilation today: Miserable Music. It's 23 songs about horrible things from 1916-1941. Unfortunately, it's a RealPlayer playlist. Fortunately, the site also links to the Library of Congress' American Memory Collection. If you dig in, you can find a shit-ton of folk recordings.
