From the Wax Poetic! Dept.

Latest gem from the New Yorker, in a Talk of the Town piece on the French elections:
The first round of the election had been a free-for-all, with a roster of candidates that included the leader of the Fishing, Hunting, Nature, and Traditions Party; a Communist postman of undisputed charm; and an anti-globalizing farmer whose mustache alone appeared to be the product of an agricultural subsidy.
Oh, to write like that!

Also, did anyone else notice Google's subtle switch to a new layout today?

i noticed! i'd like to say that i was able to tell the difference all by myself, but, alas, told me. as the girl at java green so eloquently put it today, i'm not so observant. (so what if i couldn't find the metal cup of straws that was right in front of me...)
