This is Mark Bittman's third collection of 101 no-hassle dishes. These aren't gimmicks—they're good food designed to be made in under 20 minutes (frequently much under), using foods you might have around the house. (Over the years, I've discovered that a little prep at the shopping stage guarantees that you'll have the ingredients to make good food fast.)

Back when I worked at the lower Broadway Tower Records, those crazy cut-ups in the Classical Annex culled the stupidest, most cheesecakey covers from the used bins and covered a wall-of-shame in the count-out room with them.

I'm a huge fan of Martin Puryear's sculpture, having discovered it at a 1987 Hirschhorn retrospective. So I've been meaning to catch up with his current exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art. Arthur C. Danto's appreciation in The Nation serves not only as a stimulus to hie me hence forthwith, but also as a meditation on MOMA's second-floor atrium.

Helen A. S. Popkin has written a fine opinion piece on the new, phenomenally wrong-headed Congressional Prioritizing Resources and Organization for Intellectual Property Act (PRO-IP Act), which among other things (such as absurd penalties) includes a spanking new enforcement agency called WHIPER (White House Intellectual Property Enforcement Representative).

Andrew Ferguson has written a highway history of Abraham Lincoln. Among other observations, he points out that the man who "waged one of the most savage wars in our history" was definitely not non-judgmental.

Walker Brown was born 11 years ago with "an impossibly rare and random genetic mutation—cardio-facio-cutaneous syndrome, a technical name for a mash of symptoms. He is globally delayed and can't speak, so I never know what's wrong. No one does."

Was Frank Sinatra's failed marriage to Ava Gardner responsible for one of the greatest comebacks in American art?

Holosonics is called the "audio spotlight" because it can project sound directly into your head, claiming that it is inaudible just a step away.

Bagheera likes the R601W Tube Hi-Fi FM/AM Classic Radio. What's not to like? It's tubed, has a walnut cabinet, and she looks good on it.
