About four years ago, a

About four years ago, a friend told me that I really need to watch this site, whose tagline is “vertias odit moras”, and is really an academically-oriented review of and pointer to news, culture, and criticism on the Web. I went back to the site today, after sadly ignoring it for four years and while its appearance is almost exactly the same, the content is unbelievably good.
Here are some highlights: Susan Sontag calls for English or an international lingua franca, in the TLS. Only 47 items are currently missing from the Baghdad Museum, out of 8000 originally, in the Washington Post. A feature by Elizabeth Drew, in the New York Review of Books, about Bush Neocons. I’m truly flabbergasted at the linking, culling, curating, and editing talent of ALDaily.
