* Why is Boing Boing giving valuable blog real estate to global warming denialism? I see Cory has admirably tried to push back against the guest blogger, but still. What a sad day for Boing Boing.
* Michael Bérubé just took the GRE Literature in English subject test again. And lived to tell about it.
* Rethinking plagiarism? Sorry, but this isn't that hard. Students know exactly what they're doing when they plagiarize. Turn them over to Judicial Affairs and don't think twice.
* Ten privacy settings every Facebook user should know.
* Joe the Plumber is now advising the GOP. WTFRepublicans?
* Fimoculous has found Wikipedia's list of lists of fictional things.
* The New Yorker's Hendrik Hertberg was not impressed with Obama's first inaugural. More shocking still is the unabashed anti-Hindu prejudice expressed in a demand that they be listed last in the litany of religious belief, even after hated atheists. Via Edge of the American West.
