A time to speak and a time to be silent

For today, a list of links that may be thought-provoking.

1. Roger Ebert on violence in media.

2. A post on irony which suggests that many of us, not just hipsters, have forgotten how to take life seriously. How do we discern when to be ironic and when not to be ironic? (Also, some people who write songs don’t know what irony actually is.) I plan to think some more about this and possibly write a whole post about it.

3. And finally, in honour of AMom and her many gingerbread architectural wonders over the years, some literary gingerbread houses.

One response to “A time to speak and a time to be silent

  1. Liked Wampole’s piece. I mean I liked it ironically. As if hipster culture warranted such thoughtful and well-written coverage. Hilarious.
