Lazy Linking, Sixteenth in an Occasional Series
Here's what I liked on the Internets this week:
* Fast Company scoops the new segment of High Line Park in Manhattan. Love the "flyover" concept.
* Megan McArdle is right - I would be happy to write an op-ed for the Times for free.
* Keith Hennessey says Rahm Emanuel is lying when he tries to sling mud on the Bushies for their role in the auto bailout.
* Looking for planning solutions that de-emphasize car travel and re-exalt the pedestrian? Try classics that were written before cars were king.
* Obama made the right move, and McChrystal should've known better, but David Brooks is right - this incident isn't doing wonders for encouraging more good people to go into public service.
* In case you were wondering if pricing carbon correctly is still political suicide, check out what happened in Australia.
* Finally some love for the dads - all the momcentrism of baby media and products is a bit insulting.
* This map is cool - one thing it can tell me is that there were 58 more people who moved from Santa Clara County (where my parents live) to Philadelphia County (where I live) than vice versa, and that those who went east were making twice as much as those who went west.
* David Frum is sour on green jobs, and wants the Class of 2010 to know it.
* Lastly, how about some love for my firm, which is tapping into its networks to grow in the midst of a choppy economy.
