Weekly Allowance
March 11th, 2010

You’ve been with me for more than two months.  You’ve done your chores – read and commented.  So I think it’s time I paid you your allowance.  Here are the posts, articles, and interviews from the past week that I’ve found most interesting.

Media Watchdogs: This 12-minute video clip interviews various media personalities about the responsibilities of the press, the market for Fox News, and why The Daily Show and Colbert Report have risen to a level of unexpected relevance in the greater media landscape.

Undercover Boss: Arianna Huffington’s piece on a new reality show that exposes the magnitude of the chasm that exists between corporate executives and their low-level employees.  I thought about writing a post in response to this piece, but it’s already expressed so eloquently here, I decided just to pass it along.

A Lard Story: The Kitchen Witch’s post on her love of lard (and the flaky things that it creates) is a riot.  If you need a laugh (or a recipe) go read it now!

Chocolate Soufflé Cupcakes: This is the recipe I’m most eager to make, but haven’t yet.

    Oh Gale! Your friends are never going to forgive you for sending them to the lard story! :) Thank you! My day is officially made!

    Fabulous! I always accept payment in good reading recommendations, brownies, or hugs.

    Hi Gale!
    It is “D,” your fellow commenter from Ivy League Insecurities. I wanted to let you know that when you first replied yesterday, I was confused because the Gale I knew was “blue” like me, ie, blog-less. Good for you for starting this, you always struck me as incredibly smart and insightful in your comments on ILI and I’m sure the blog amplifies this. Sorry I am late to the table to “visit” you but as you know I was on trial until very recently. (Time stopped for me in November, I’m still wondering where my Christmas went :) !) I can’t promise I’ll comment everyday as the aftermath of the trial has meant I am busier (and more in-demand) than I was before, but I’ll be here.
    Congratulations!
    D
