Linkdump!

* The headline reads, “Mystery Roar from Faraway Space Detected.”

* Probably the stupidest thing ever published in the L.A. Times: a bald anti-science assertion that deadly allergies don’t exist.

* ‘Going Under’: Doctors addicted to drugs. Via MeFi.

* Valuating Facebook in terms of Whoppers.

* I don’t know if I’m more worried that my insomnia will lead to paranoia or Exploding Head syndrome.

* News that by this point will surprise no one: Arctic melt 20 years ahead of climate models.

* Legislation has been introduced for a post-Bush truth and reconciliation commission. This is something that is sorely needed, and I hope the Democratic leadership puts its full weight behind it.

* Blago: owned. More discussion here.

* The literary world is abuzz with news of Jack Torrance’s latest, All Work and No Play Makes Jack a Dull Boy.

* Cory Doctorow on writing in an age of distraction.

* Things not to do: buying a $1000 house in Detroit. Big ups to Cleveland, which is apparently turning into Detroit.

(Thanks to Bill for some of these!)
