* How to Organize an Insurrection: tips from the protestors in Greece. (Via Vu.)

* It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. Via Kevin Drum.

* Fimoculous’s 30 Most Notable Blogs of 2008. #31 for the second year running!

* Burris bags benighted Blago embrace. Democrats demur.

* Jim Webb will introduce legislation to beat back the prison-industrial complex.

* The case for Caroline Kennedy. I find this interesting because it’s a completely ends-based analysis, the only field in which I think Kennedy’s potential appointment has merit. She will be probably a good senator from my perspective and probably (yes) advantageous for New York—but she just doesn’t deserve the nod. The Senate’s not the House of Lords.

* The 1,000 Greatest Films of All Time. Subset: The 250 Greatest Films of the Last Eight Years. Via MeFi.

* Also from MeFi: an improbable defense of the suburbs from a most-probable place.

* Franken… wins?

* “Golden Years”: A pre-Office one-off from Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.

* “Farewell to All That: An Oral History of the Bush White House.” 22 days remain.
