New Yorker Goodies

Not much to add to them, but I really liked both this sympathetic/critical/honest profile of Alec Baldwin and this rundown of McCain and Obama's attempts at outreach to faith communities in the new issue of "the magazine."

Neither story tells you much that you haven't already heard before, but both are able to give their subjects a contextual sweep that makes you say, hmm, I think I understand that much better now.

(In addition to my new "Elections" tag, which helps split up my filled-to-bursting "The Polis," I'm going to add one for TV and Movies, called "Screens.")
