Critical Linking: March 24, 2012

“As a reader of many, many reviews, I have to admit I’m more alarmed by the number of dull ones than the number of unkind ones.”

“I CAPS LOCK and LOL at my ease observing cute kittens”

Though this is funny, Whitman wouldn’t have blogged. But he would be all over self-publishing.


“Fewer than half of young high school graduates who don’t pursue postsecondary education are employed full-time”

I can’t believe we have to justify college these days. But I guess we do.


“Writing programs are the last refuge for people who read books and like to talk about them.”
