Worthy Links

chain links

You can learn a lot about a person by seeing what’s on his bookshelf (or in his CD binder, or his blogroll). So here’s a list of webpages that I think are worth your time, and also links to other blogs written by Salon members. You’re probably able to figure out that since these links go to sites outside of Salon Auteur, the views expressed therein may not necessarily reflect the Salon’s views. Just so you know.
