Writing Worth Reading

[2]Role Reversal: TV And Film
    Links:
      2. http://b.rw/bVsaf4

Edward J. Epstein | Hollywood Economist | 13 October 2010
  Plausible theory as to why American films have got so much worse, television
  so much better. It's a case of revenue models. Cable subscriptions drive TV,
  merchandising and foreign sales drive films

[3]Education Of President Obama
    Links:
      3. http://b.rw/92flG2

Peter Baker | NYT | 12 October 2010
  Engaging profile of president at bay. Useful backgrounder for mid-terms.
  Obama over-estimated his own powers of persuasion, underestimated
  opposition. Needs to make fresh start, as Bill Clinton did in 1994.

[4]Godless Morality
    Links:
      4. http://b.rw/aukfAW

Mary Warnock | Five Books | 10 October 2010
  Philosopher discusses books which argue the case for a morality independent
  of religious belief. From David Hume to Philip Pullman, by way of Jane
  Austen, Richard Holloway and G.E.M. Anscombe

[5]Landscape And Architecture

Václav Havel | Forum 2000 | 10 October 2010
  Despairing reflection on urban sprawl as a product of human wealth and
  pride. Modern West an "atheistic civilisation". Problem not so much loss of
  religion, more loss of humility, loss of mystery

[6]A Primer On The Foreclosure Crisis
    Links:
      6. http://b.rw/dfHLgS

John Carney | NetNet | 11 October 2010
  Just what the title says. Highly readable guide to why American banks are
  having trouble foreclosing on mortgage defaulters: because the banks'
  paperwork isn't in order. And whether it matters: yes, a lot

[7]What's Working In Music
    Links:
      7. http://b.rw/a05eLE

Anonymous | Economist | 7 October 2010
  Music industry growing again, though record companies not benefiting.
  Live-concert revenues have tripled, thanks to higher ticket prices.
  Merchandise and TV royalties also booming. CDs sell mainly to older people
