Quick reads

Out of pocket this morning, but the waiting room I’m in has internet access (they don’t know it, but they do). Anyway, there are a couple of NY Times articles of special note (reg. required):

1. A piece on a supposed rift, in weblog land between warbloggers and techbloggers. I don’t think there’s much to it, but it’s interesting how the NYT is covering it.

2. This David Brooks piece about American affluence is perceptive (“perceptive” means I agree with it).
