I had a long afternoon to spend yesterday, so in addition to starting Dorothy Sayers' Unnatural Death, I read a couple of articles I figured I'd link.

The first one is from the New York Times Magazine, entitled "How Christian Were the Founders?". It discusses changing views of how the founders of the US viewed religion and its place in government, how this should be represented in textbooks, and how the Texas school board influences education in the rest of the country.

The second one is probably more in my usual line, from the New Yorker: "But Enough About Me", which discusses the development of the memoir, how it relates to fiction and truth, and what memoir tells us about ourselves.
