Worth A Link

  • Kip Esquire on the deaths of children and adults in Qana, Lebanon, over the weekend: "The 36 child fatalities, as well as the 20 adults, in the Lebanese city of Qana were killed by Israeli weapons. But they were murdered by Hezbollah."
  • Laura Vanderkam on one of my favorite subjects -- keeping perspective on what's really risky in our world, from deadly roller coaster rides to venomous spiders. A couple of months ago, I blogged about a similar lack of perspective in stories about children being killed by falling TVs.
  • Phil Plait on the suppression of science at the FDA and elsewhere in our federal government.
  • Mark Cuban on the way technology is changing not just what we watch on TV, but how we decide what we're going to watch.
