Sunday Reading for Hi Ohs

I will have some pictures up tomorrow of Ohio, including the road crew in situ, on the road. I can report that nearly every single ad I have seen on tv from McCain has been a negative ad - including some delectably served hate from NRA (check out, if you must). And everything I saw from Obama has been on the issue. Weird, no? And yet, Cookie Roberts can fold her hands and sanctimoniously declare that both sides have been negative. I hate pun-dits.

  • India's Arjun is what happens when Aladdin grows up (in animation terms). Here is a preview.
  • Tariq Ali's newest gets reviewed by Muhammad Hanif. He likes it.
  • Nadeem Aslam's latest, The Wasted Vigil, is reviewed by Lorraine Adams. A lot of people liked his earlier novel, but I couldn't get into his prose. Doesn't look-it that it has improved an awful lot.
  • Chetan Bhagat is the John Grisham of India. Or something.
  • Zizek's political economy needs wider reading.
  • The novel on Aisha is reportedly published.
  • Lastly, History done right.

Cokie Roberts is a socialite, not a journalist. And a bit dense.
