Favorite recent NYT articles

December 31, 2007

Blogging has fallen by the wayside since starting my current job. Here’s something random.

The good people of ye-old university which employs me gives us free copies of the New York Times as well as other local papers. Here is a list of my favorite articles from the last little while.

  1. Driving Tips From 68 Degrees North (Winter driving tips from a rally racing champion; well, champion co-driver, but who’s counting) [link]
  2. Forgotten, Yes. But Happy Birthday Anyway (about the The Comte de Buffon, archnemesis to Carolus Linnaeus) [link]

    it is absurd to imagine God being “very busy with the way a beetle’s wing should fold.”

  3. Bourbon’s Shot at the Big Time (Bourbon becomes legit) [link]
  4. Happiness for $10 or Less (25 reds for under $10) [link]
  5. China’s Turtles, Emblems of a Crisis (The last two Yangtze giant soft-shell turtles on earth) [link]
