As you all know, Sadie has been helping out while Bookworm is away by sending links to all kinds of sites that interest her. Here is your chance to play Sadie for a day. Treat this as a special kind of open thread in which you post links to things you’ve found on the Internet that you think the rest of us might be interested in. Check out each other’s links. Then, if you want to comment on the other links, the price of admission is supplying a link yourself. Let’s have some fun with this.
I’ll start with a different subject matter than we usually cover here — the National Football League. The link is to a column in my local paper talking about how the NFL has dominated people’s attention, as much or more than the debt ceiling crisis. Monte Poole, the columnist, is right, of course, as to Americans in general, who are consumed by the NFL. But are the Bookwormroom readers fans? Do you think spectator sports are a healthy release or an unhealthy distraction?
