URLs du Jour (8/29/2005)

  • Corporate Average Fuel Efficiency (CAFE) standards are a bad joke. See James Glassman's article at Tech Central Station for why.
  • URL du Java: see this article to wipe out any guilty feelings you might have about that morning cuppa joe. It turns out it will help you live forever through the miracle of antioxidants! Starbucks: your health food store.
  • I don't do a lot of "current events" blogging. But vis-a-vis Hurricane Katrina, a number of folks have recalled this contibution from a man named James Wolcott, some sort of editor for a magazine named Vanity Fair.

    I root for hurricanes. When, courtesy of the Weather Channel, I see one forming in the ocean off the coast of Africa, I find myself longing for it to become big and strong--Mother Nature's fist of fury, Gaia's stern rebuke.

    I wonder if Vanity Fair's circulation will drop in the Gulf Coast area post-Katrina?
