I have to take a break from the list to offer praise to:
1. FreeDarko's Style Guide in which basketball players are deftly divided into 20 brilliantly illustrated categories. The enthusiastic praise from the commenters is touching.
2. Tenacious D singing Kickapoo on Saturday Night Live. I wonder where this Kickapoo place is. I'd like to go there. After viewing this, go see the movie. They need the numbers.
3. Malcom Gladwell approaches racism (of the Richards/Gibson/Irvin variety) with the veracity of a mad statistician, complete with operationalized variables. Please forgive him for the Irwin misspell.
