Bird’s eye view

You may have heard about the death of Benazir Bhutto, who was prime-minister of Pakistan in the Eighties and Nineties. The shocking thing I thought was the fact that this was the second assassination attempt after she returned from exile. I’m not sure what to think of the tributes around the world: she and her husband were trailed by aplenty of corruption charges.

Earlier I read an article about some correlation between cities and the amount of intelligent people living in those cities: the article concluded (if I recall correctly) that the amount of libraries and newspaper circulation helped lift up those statistics. So: if you parents tell you to go to the library or read the paper, maybe you really should listen. If you thought the Internet was going to make you smarter then you’re probably wrong.

And then there was this (well-linked) article at Rolling Stone about the quality of sound in the music industry. I thought this was old news (I’m positive that I’ve read this story somewhere earlier).
