In last Sunday's New York Times, public editor, Arthur Brisbane, tackles the question of whether Times writer/blogger, Jacques Steinberg, and his editors, overstepped some frontier of journalistic propriety when he included in his blog a link that offered, for sale, an online educational course taught by Steinberg.

Cooper Union student, Andrejs Rauchut, did his senior thesis on a series of diagrams and images which trace the character movements within Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors.

See the BLDD BLOG post for October 5.
