Just Posting Random Links

After I twittered about the earwax saga, Phantom sent me a link to a medical journal article on earwax removal. You might find it useful. Or amusing. Or both. I’ve already sent a copy to the school nurse; I’ll give a copy to the pediatrician next month.

If you are interested in or involved with the arts, you might like to check out the Americans for the Arts comparison of the presidential candidates' positions on arts issues.

I’ve been quite fascinated with Andrew Sullivan’s blog – mostly he’s posting snips and links to other stuff, but it’s good stuff I’m not seeing elsewhere and his point of view is interesting. He’s also got a “dead-tree” piece in the November issue of the Atlantic, which is also available in eco-friendly on-line form. It’s called “Why I Blog” and it’s worth a read.

On the subject of poverty and wealth (how's that for a segue?), I found (via Bitch PhD) a fascinating site called Global Rich List - in essence, it puts your money in perspective by showing you where you stand in comparison to EVERYONE ELSE IN THE WORLD income-wise.

Last, but by no means least, Jen and Mad and Su rounded up another batch of Just Posts for September, and included one of mine - the one in which I suggested little ways to make a difference in the world.   Incidentally, Kiva came in third in the Amex voting, and will get a $300,000 grant.

Global Rich was very interesting. And I am a big Sullivan fan, too. Enjoy this beautiful day!

Your "Julia Child" comment at Fond of Snape cracked me up! I had to come over to meet you. So, uh, it's nice to meet you. ;-)

I think Kiva is great! I think our extended family is going to make donations to Kiva this year instead of doing a gift exchange.
