* Jerome Weeks explains some of the economic hows and whys of journalistic arts coverage.

* Woundings that endangered life nearly doubled in London between 1997 and 2005, a period of extraordinarily high immigration.

* Every now and then the camera clicks at just the right moment ...

* Kirsten Mortensen reviews the many impressive ways by which the city of Rochester is wasting her money.

* Here's more medical-study-style incentive to eat your veggies. No word yet from the docs about how important it is that the experience be enjoyable and attractive, though ...

* Some people may not have been born to be Air Force pilots ...

* The lengths you have to go to to attract people to a serious music concert these days! (NSFW)

* ChelseaGirl favors a Venus razor.

* Tasha and Dishka are working in the new genre of girl-chum karaoke, and I'm not complaining.

* Here's the latest skirmish in the war of the state vs. producers of raw milk.
