A day late, but important: The Forgotten Radical History of Labor Day
YA (and some other) authors, led by Patrick Ness, have raised over £500,000 for refugees. I'm glad to have had a very small part in that. (It's still going! Not too late! Publishers are starting to kick in matching donations at certain milestones, so head over and give a little if you can.)
Ooh, the BBC World Service is expanding, including new plans for Russia and North Korea. (I love the BBC World Service. I have it on in my car almost all the time.)
I have somewhat mixed feelings about this Wikipedia scandal. I mean, obviously the extortion part is bad, but doesn't everyone assume any sensible person/company is policing (or paying someone to police) their entry??
This is indeed a good list of New England towns to visit, but BuzzFeed clearly has no idea what the word "tiny" means. Nor "hidden." PORTSMOUTH IS NOT A SECRET, YOU GUYS.
