Miscellanous linkage

Michael Jackson bits from Ta-Nehisi Coates (via The Dizzies), Annalee Newitz, Ed Champion and Phil Nugent. (Also: Martha Southgate's 2006 review of Margo Jefferson's book on Jackson and an interesting interview with Jefferson about the book and its subject.)

Thoroughly unrelated: Reassigned Time explains why it's worth taking longer to write a dissertation if it means laying the foundation for a productive life on the tenure track.

  1. Michael Jackson's thoroughly cultivated foundational skills honed through the Jackson 5 allowed him to do well in music, not because he had some grand agenda. ...anyway, back to my grand agenda. Or was it grant agenda? Or was it Grant agenda as in the $50 bill?
