[links] Link salad drinks from a jelly jar glass

Mainspring garners a rather nice review

Nil by Mouth — Roger Ebert, on never eating again in wake of his cancer surgeries. Stunningly beautiful writing.

Hindenburg letterhead — From Letterheady, a rather curious blog. (Via Drawn!.)

Vintage Sci Fi Pulp Illustrations

The Garden Army? — An interesting and vaguely disturbing WWI US home front poster.

Radio Hat — Um… (Thanks to @ShellyRaeClift.)

Exoplanets: Mapping a Distant Blue Dot — More from Centauri Dreams on using Earth as a target dummy to calibrate exoplanetary observations.

Brit Hume and the right to stupid speech — More on alleged discrimination against Christians in public discourse. (Which is discrimination, I suppose, if one defines any divergence from one’s own views as discriminatory. Too bad, Brit. White male Christians really are not an oppressed class.)
