1. Friedrich Nietzsche bears about as much responsibility for the actions of Jared Lee Loughner as does Sarah Palin; which is to say none at all.

2. Just when I thought Dennis Kucinich couldn’t get any more ridiculous . . .

3. A Wordle for the 16th edition of The Chicago Manual of Style.

4. A Wordle for A Chequer-Board of Nights and Days. No idea whatsoever why the word “oh” is so prominent. I also notice that the Palestinians get a great deal of representation.

5. I love the Internet.

6. A real Greek Hero. Behold his invention at work:

        This is speculation, but…the Wordle FAQ says it excludes “stop words (a frequently-used, but unimportant word, such as “the”, “and”, or “but”) “. Perhaps “why” is on this list?
