Via Pharyngula, Michael Bérubé will be joining Crooked Timber. This is good for the blogosphere, and will give me lots of good things to write about.
As a side note, a reader at Crooked Timber calling him/herself Tyrone Slothrop has a pretty good looking blog called "All Intensive Purposes". May be worth checking from time to time. I especially enjoyed the long quotation about the Corn Mother from The Golden Bough.
