Friday Linkzookery – 19 Sep 2008

I’m experimenting with putting a few Linkzookery-type short posts in during the week with little in the way of excerpts or commentary, but that doesn’t mean the Linkzookery has gone the way of the tyranosaur, the dodo bird, or Ross Perot supporter.

As always, feel free to add links to this post in the comments section. Link to anything you think MO readers may enjoy, and don’t be shy about linking back to your own blog. One can never have too much linkzookery.
