Quick Ones

Quick ones.

* Naturally, Barack Obama is Time‘s Person of the Year. For a brief while I thought they might pick someone else for shock value, but come on, this was a gimme.

* Jaimee pointed this out to me today, and now I’m seeing it at Politico: if she’s selected to replace Hillary Clinton in the Senate—which seems, sadly, inevitable—Caroline Kennedy will have been in the Senate eight years in 2016, just like Clinton ’08…

* Science fiction and glamor.

* TV Tropes has a whole subsection on comic book tropes.

* The best superhero graphic novels of 2008.

* And my vote for best news story of this or any year: Tiny Swiss watch found in undisturbed 400-year-old tomb.

‘The Sexing Up of Tina Fey’

leave a comment »

Salon’s Broadsheet has full coverage of the sexing up of Tina Fey, while Jezebel counters with photos of the provocatively unsexed-up younger Fey. My personal favorite Fey is “Weekend Update” Fey, c. 2003, who I’m certain is still in there somewhere, finding this sort of nonsense completely ridiculous.
