The Communist empire was brought down by a labor union. Now perhaps the same will happen to big-time amateur sports.

Thanx to Chronicle

Private equity wants to do for the guitar business, and anything else it can get its claws into, what it did for mortgages. Boing Boing summarizes, and here's the original thorough discussion.

The US Army has a new set of rules for what black women's hair should look like. It would have benefited immeasurably if they had deigned to ask black women.

Thanx to Feministing

I'll get the bad news out of the way first. Saul Austerlitz's Sitcom (a history thereof) does not devote a chapter to The Addams Family; in fact it mentions the show only once, in a parenthetical, not distinguishing it from *feh* The Munsters.

Otherwise, it's good, tracing 24 other shows, with particular attention to cross-reference and self-reference. The New Yorker discusses the book and how All in the Family changed things by complicating our reaction to the characters. When All in the Family came out, Old Leftist John Leonard hated it because it acted as if the white working class were full of people stupid enough to take it seriously and root for Archie, which is what happened.

Charles Keating, who was famous for stomping smut before he became more famous for robbing widows and orphans, has been flushed from the bowl of life. Presumably mourned by John McCain and the rest of the Keating Five, and no one else.
