Beltway Traffic Jam

I’m off to the first of two work-related Christmas parties of the evening (mine and then Kim’s). Three more office parties for various work sections are scheduled for the next two weeks.

The daily linkfest:

  • Steven Taylor? explains that paper grading is hell.
  • Steve Bainbridge is ready for an American Autobahn.
  • Dean Esmay has some thoughts on the lowbrow nature of online discourse.
  • Kenton Kelly would not pay to see Peyton Manning playing old Led Zeppelin tunes on an accordion.
