LA Hump Day Links: March 7, 2012
- “How, And How Not, To Improve Schools,” by Diane Ravitch at The New York Review of Books: In a perfect offshoot to her 2010 book, Diane Ravitch gives an updated critical review about America’s crumbling education infrastructure — and about the quality of teachers and teaching.
- “West Wing Babies,” by Juli Weiner at Vanity Fair: Aaron Sorkin’s The West Wing wrapped up its series finale more than six years, but the “Sorkinzation” of The White House still carries on today.
- “Citizen Of Somewhere,” by Nathan Deuel at The Morning News: How a falafel sandwich represents complete loneliness. Powerful, concise writing.
- “I’m Comic Sans, Asshole,” by Mike Lacher at McSweeney’s: A mixture of blunt humor and an expansive vocabulary gives some perspective on the most misunderstood of fonts.
