Friday Pix: Recommended Reading For The Weekend

This Friday I point you to some recommended reading around the blogosphere:

1. I loved this skewer of the whole Joe Wilson thing. Grown-ups in politics? Naaahhhhhhhhh….

2. I also enjoyed this thought-provoking analysis in the Detroit Free Press of why long summers may be delaying adulthood.

3. Here’s a Q and A with author Andrew Cherlin about the state of marriage in the U.S. and Europe, based on his new book, The Marriage-Go-Round.  Given how many (happily) un-married couples and parents I know in London, I was really intrigued by the cross-national statistics.

4. But for those of us who are married, wives will surely enjoy Michelle Slatalla’s laugh-out-loud essay on what happens when your husband comes home with a new pair of (ugly) shoes.

5. Here’s my own rant on American fast food in yesterday’s

6. Finally, Robert Kaplan makes the case in The Atlantic for watching Al Jazeera. I have to say I’m intrigued.

Enjoy your weekend!
