Assorted links

1. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. Am I really linking to Maureen Dowd?

2. Hollywood, history and politics - in this case, pirate radio. This is why I rarely read historical novels or see movies based on historical events. I like to put an (admittedly somewhat artificial) wall between history and fiction in my cultural consumption.

3. Recessions have political consequences too.

4. Ohio state government out of control.

5. Ignatieff: Just visiting.
