Worth A Link

  • Michael Shermer on what the Tucson shootings and the Arkansas dead birds have in common: randomness
  • William Saletan on how an armed hero almost shot the wrong man in Tucson
  • Wikipedia busts dozens of myths in its List Of Common Misconceptions -- for examples, try the Technology section
  • Dan Gillmor on why it's more important than ever to be skeptical of everything you're exposed to in the media
  • The Museum of Broadcast Communications has posted an online exhibit of Sixty Years Of Television Commercials (no fast-forwarding allowed!)
