    Mike: I’m a big fan of your site, but I wonder if you know that the Washington Post maintains a strict limit on articles one can read without subscribing? I don’t expect you to change your practice of putting up links you think are interesting, but would it be possible to asterisk or otherwise indicate links that are not actually publicly available (i.e., free for unlimited viewing)?

    That rejection letter is even funnier if you lop off the f.jpg and find out that the recipient got his PhD from Harvard in ’84 and is now a tenured professor there.

    1000mg of acetominophen is two standard caps: what you’d take for a headache, but being careful not to take any more for four or five hours.
