oh, and there was an article in the washington blade about the hairspray auditions as well. All in first-person, by someone in the gutter looking at the stars. or something to that effect.

::: posted by johnok at 12:15 PM

It appears that the Sun has someone on the hairspray beat, what with this followup article to the auditions from a few weeks ago.

I also found interesting biographiess of canadian prime ministers. can't say much for the one on jean chretien, though. This via the resource shelf.

There was a very interesting article about the children's book author lemony snicket, here unmasked as one daniel handler, who has apparently also written several books for adults as well, which sound suitably odd. I was glad to see that he was very much influenced by roald dahl, as I always appreciated him a writer who treated children as intelligent people. Oh, and here's another article, this time in the guardian, with a mother's point of view. That article via linkwatcher.

I must also point out the author bio from the books - "Lemony Snicket was born in a small town where the inhabitants were suspicious and prone to riot. He now lives in the city. During his spare time he gathers evidence and is considered something of an expert by leading authorities." Which I find succint and to the point.

Very interesting series from the associated press about land theft in the south. Theft of black farms, stores, etc. through harassment, intimidation, questionable legal cases and by any means possible. this from the the scoop.
