Tuesday Musings

I'm really tearing through books right now--just read completely through Cormac McCarthy's latest, The Road, in less than 24 hours.

It's a hard book to put down--for one thing, there are no chapters--just one event after another, encountered by a father and son wandering through a post-apocalyptic world. Kind of a union of CBS's Jericho and the Mad Max movies.

It much less hopeful than any of those works. This novel is probably the saddest, and most horrifying book I've every read. There is no limit to what human beings will do in order to survive!

So to more hopeful fare--the student blogs!

Ashley's hybrid vehicle blog has more on NYC's use of hybrids for taxis.

Brandon has found some very helpful suggestions on cover letters.

Juliana talks about maintaining the right attitude during interviews, and has an interesting article on the use of humor during the interview process.

Kristin has posted a number of links to organic food websites.

Matt shows us that even the wine industry is experiencing Friedman's flatteners--imagine, Louis Vuitton buying a Chinese distillery!

Brad has interesting posts on privacy, YouTube, and Live leak.

Good work, group!
