Still More Link Laziness
Posted by Ed
Today I'm feeling lazy, so I'll just provide more links instead of real content:
- What made the Ealing comedies (like the original Ladykillers and The Lavender Hill Mob) so good?
- Meet "the third Inkling": Charles Williams. (The Times Literary Supplement discusses the best-known colleague of Tolkien and Lewis.)
- Is it good to be bored? (via ArtsJournal)
- Peter Ackroyd reviews the history of antiquarianism in eighteenth-century Britain.
- A.N. Wilson discusses Lawrence James's discussion of T.E. Lawrence, as well as the continuing relevance of Lawrence's Seven Pillars of Wisdom.
- How did former Senator Max Cleland get to be the Democratic party's "mascot"? Does Cleland deserve his reputation as a martyr? The New Republic's Michael Crowley asks these questions in Slate.
- Was Lolita plagiarized? (I doubt it...)
- Karen Armstrong (the author of several books on religious history) has written a memoir.
- Niall Ferguson asks how the growth of Muslim immigrant communities, the aging of the native-born population, and the decline of Christian faith will reshape European culture.
- The New York Times discusses a series of recreational math gatherings inspired by Martin Gardner.
- Michael Dirda reviews a book on Lewis Carroll's impact on pop culture.
: I've added links from weekend papers.

As the htmarkup didn't seem to work:
Being bored is probably the most unhealthy phenomenon known to man. There is too much to do in this world and too little time to live.
