Link dump #3, mother of all link dumps.

* I thought I was over Obama kitsch, but somehow the kids’ letters to Obama featured on This American Life last week still somehow got to me. Adorable!

* Austen gets a much-needed updating: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

* The Massachusetts lottery: if you’ve got $10,000+ to burn, it turns out it could actually be a good bet.

* Wikipedia is looking to ruin itself. More at MeFi.

* A zoomable map of the Moon from a 1969 National Geographic. Simply irresistible.

* How to nationalize health care.

* Rethinking your opposition to nuclear power? Rethink again. I’ve been working on a piece for the Indy on nuclear power in North Carolina that covers some of these themes. Via Steve Benen.
