It seems that the Palin-not-knowing-Africa-is-a-continent story was a hoax. This doesn't change my overall opinion of her, but it's only fair to note it. . . . I don't know the ramifications of this, but I have to assume they're terrifying. . . . Vanity Fair has taken to ranking the top 25 of various cultural objects, in honor of the magazine's 25th anniversary. The chosen book covers seem pretty random, some of them downright boring. They do list All the Pretty Horses, and I think all of McCarthy's border trilogy books were beautifully and thoughtfully designed. . . . Speaking of book covers, a woman on the 2 train the other night was nonchalantly reading (and clearly displaying) this beauty. Oh, to only not have shame. . . . Frank Wilson posts about global warming. He's certainly right about the Orwellian use of language in "stopping climate change." . . . The lovely food blog Homesick Texan presents three recipes for pinto beans. Yum.

Re: Africa-Palin Hoax

That we could believe she didn't know that Africa was a continent says more about Palin than us.
