Housekeeping brief.

Having been introduced to Eat the Damn Cake (and blogger Kate Fridkis) by Jezebel, I’ve decided I’m in love and have added her to my Smart People blog roll.

Also, and on a strikingly unrelated note, I just deleted a comment that was awaiting moderation, in spite of its even tone and the writer’s calm approach to telling me how wrong I was on Gaza and the blockade. Why? You ask, not unreasonably, and I’ll tell you: Because two paragraphs in, the would-be commenter began to evenly and calmly advocate the ethnic cleansing of all Arabs from Israel. I think I’m pretty safe in saying that advocating ethnic cleansing — of anyone, really, anywhere — violates Rule #1 for commenting on this site:

Rule #1: Be a person.

I rather thought that went without saying but apparently, I was mistaken. Good to know.
