Every Friday I point you towards some recommended reading around the blogosphere:
1. Over on The Browser, Hassan Abbas picks five books you should read on reform in Pakistan.
2. No one does snark quite like Slate’s Jack Shafer. Here’s a round-up he did of what journalists said when they quit their jobs or got fired.
3. A new take on Weiner-gate. A journalist with the same last name, Eric Weiner, laments the damage done to all Weiners near and far.
4. Love this poem in The New Yorker inspired by Sarah Palin’s somewhat unusual interpretation of the American Revolution.
5. Finally, here’s a beautiful time-elapse video of thunderclouds forming and dissipating at the Brainiac blog on the Boston Globe.
Have a great weekend!
