Links of the Day
I’m travelling today, so posting will be light. Like everyone else, I thought Webb was excellent last night.
1. Latest chapter in the “inequality files”: traffic jam outside Manhattan’s most exclusive nursery school.
2. The Iraqi Parliament: kind of a disaster.
3. My good friend Jeffrey Lane’s new book Under the Boards: The Cultural Revolution in Basketball has a website up. You’ll be hearing more about this excellent book as the winter turns to spring. But go check it out. Whether or not you’re particulary interested in basketball, it’s as good a treatment of the strange intersection of race and pop culture as you’ll find anywhere.
