Weekend Boredom Links: News Cycle Dead, Science and Philosophy Live On

Nothing is inspiring me to write–there is an odd, choked dead feeling in the air of politics and the news cycle.  Hopefully, this is the calm before a tsunami of Congressional unseatings.  In the meantime, here’s some stuff to read!
