New Feature: Friday Links

I’ve decided that I’m going to make Friday links a regular feature on this blog. Why? Mainly, the Twitter thing clearly hasn’t caught on with this blog’s readership, so I want some way to communicate links that are worthy of reading but don’t stimulate a post. Look for it here, every (gulp) Friday afternoon. I’ll have two categories, serious links and diversions (it is Friday). Also, if you have a link to recommend, throw it in the comments, please (and to everyone else, check the comments for others). Have a great weekend!
