Another cool interview with Kate Beaton, whose comics are just so great you guys.

NYT opinion piece that recycling is overrated and often counterproductive. This piece irritates the hell out of me, because it makes some very solid points but wraps them up in some really, really unhelpful BS. (I guess straw men are pretty recyclable at least.)
