Friday Pix: Recommended Reading For The Weekend

Every Friday I point you to some worthwhile reading from around the blogosphere:

1. A friend emailed me this hysterically funny – and spot on – parody of your standard news story (via Althouse.)

2. I also enjoyed this article in the Los Angeles Times about why pop culture is for grown ups these days.

3. If you haven’t yet tired of odes to J.D. Salinger, here’s a beautiful one by my Politics Daily colleague, Walter Shapiro.

4. And from another Politics Daily colleague,  Janet Bataille writes a beautiful tribute to her loving husband.

5. I was quite taken with this lengthy meditation by novelist John Lanchester on the meaning of money in the Financial Times (Via Madam Mayo.)

6. Finally, I thought I’d share my own work over at this week, a story on female suicide bombers and a post on why we should all be bullish on America.

    As antidote to all the J.D.Salinger adulation –

    I must confess to having enjoyed Salinger’s work when I was much, much younger — and I think the young were his target audience. As to female suicide bombers, who knew equal opportunity would get to this??

  3. Thank you for the links. Will be sure to check them out this weekend! Thrilled to be spending some time at your blog after finding you via my friend Kristen over at Motherese.
