I'm feeling too sleepy to finish writing my review of I Heart Huckabees or my rant about historians who get overly speculative in their writing. Instead, here are some links:
- In The Boston Review, John Crowley discusses a new collection of Walt Kelly's Pogo comic strip. (via Crooked Timber)
- In Bookforum, Robert Boynton asks whether Brown v. Board of Education is a failure at fifty.
- The New York Times looks at the language slips of children.
- The Moscow Times discusses what it was like to live in one of Stalin's skyscrapers.
- The Nation looks at the life of Edward Teller.
- The London Times reviews Ian Kershaw's new book on Hitler and Lord Londonderry.
- Fred Kaplan, one of the sharpest foreign-policy writers around, looks at two movies: Dr. Strangelove (in The New York Times) and The Battle of Algiers (in Slate).
- In The New Yorker, Anthony Lane looks at the movies of Ronald Reagan.
- Scott McLemee reviews a new translation of the Epic of Gilgamesh.
