Would someone please write a meta-article on the coverage of Tim Tebow, white quarterback at Florida who is out-rushing practically everyone? Rushing is frequently considered the province of black quarterbacks, coded “athletic”. Tebow just set records for being the only Div I quarterback to both rush for and throw more than 20 touchdowns, apparently, and might win the Heisman. I really want to know how this is playing out.

I also really want to know if the off-the-grid/survival/prepare-for-the-apocalypse people are buying the One Laptop Per Child. I don’t know much about the OLPC, and presumably if there’s an apocalypse the net will be down, but if you are already stockpiling gold and MREs, a laptop designed for the developing world seems like it might be a worthy investment. Cheaper than gold.
