Friday Links

It’s that time again when my browser is overburdened with tabs.

Here are a few things that have been of interest to me, of late:

First, last week I waded into the intersection of Pop Culture (Katy Perry) and Early American History (the Illuminati!).

Some Friday Humor–The Founding Fathers are dropped into an American Mall.

Hot Chocolate as a truly American drink. This gives me great comfort as I’m downing hot chocolate in the midst of a Minnesota winter. It also brings to mind the spiced hot chocolate served at Colonial Williamsburg.

On a much more serious note, Rod Dreher wrote some provocative things.

Peter Lawler on the flaws of Scott Walker’s opinion of higher education.

On the griefs that made T.S. Eliot into a real poet.

Churches in Silicon Valley.

Do you miss playing the Oregon Trail or Carmen Sandiego?

And, let’s not forget the obligatory Patriotism and Piety link.
