NYT

The "Most Emailed Articles" list on NY Times is just on fire today:

Say Yes To Mess provides some interesting thoughts on the nature of mess and handy justifications for my own pathological messiness.

An op-ed column titled The Devoted Student draws an insightful parallel between political correctness and "religious correctness" and makes an articulate plea for nuance and doubt.

For the Uninitiated: A Pancake Primer gives the rundown I've always wanted on how to tweak pancakes every which ways. I don't agree with him on the bananas, though -- for my money, raspberries picked from behind Doug's house are the addition of choice.

Congressman Criticizes Election of Muslim highlights the ridiculously mean-spirited and xenophobic reaction of Virginia congressman Virgil Goode to Keith Ellison's decision to use a Koran instead of a Bible at a swearing-in ceremony. Ellison was just elected from my old district in MN, and this also happens to provide him a nice opportunity to sound intelligent and reasonable on a national stage.

Anyway, re: my last post, I slept for more than 12 hours last night...I was late for work, but I think it was worth it.

But using some of the other techniques in the article, you can make them moist without adding big, brash bananas that scream "I AM BANANA!" so loudly that you are unlikely to hear "i am pancake"...
