Everyone is talking Office-Politics.
What problems are you grappling with? Is a co-worker making you want to tear your hair out? Did the Boss call you into his/her office? And then pull the rug out from under you! Did you snag a fired co-worker’s furniture -- only to have it stolen by someone in another department? Is the cubicle dweller next to you driving you bananas by chatting on the phone with his wife, girlfriends, kids, etc.?

Today's Hot Stories Submitted and Voted by Youhttp://www.netscape.com/
You might not understand the need for another political blog. But the
day is still young. By three o'clock this afternoon, you will have hit
refresh for the third time at Talking Points Memo, followed every Gawker
link back to the /New York Post/, and read all the Romenesko letters.
Even worse, you have vowed to stop reading The Corner after John
Podhoretz announced his suspension of posting. In a few hours, you will
be on your knees pleading with the gods of the Internet for just one
more pretext for procrastination. And at that moment of existential
angst, when you are convinced that you can't continue, you'll remember
the advent of The Plank and will begin reciting prayers of thanksgiving.
We can't promise always to be the most incisive or funniest blog. But,
dammit, we know how to waste your time.

McSweeney's Internet Tendency
McSweeney’s began in 1998 as a literary journal, edited by Dave Eggers, that published only works rejected by other magazines. But after the first issue, the journal began to publish pieces primarily written with McSweeney’s in mind. Since then, McSweeney’s has attracted works from some of the finest writers in the country, including Denis Johnson, William T. Vollmann, Rick Moody, Joyce Carol Oates, Heidi Julavits, Jonathan Lethem, Michael Chabon, Ben Marcus, Susan Straight, Roddy Doyle, T.C. Boyle, Steven Millhauser, Gabe Hudson, Robert Coover, Ann Beattie, and many others.
Today, McSweeney’s has grown to be one of the country’s best-read and widely-circulated literary journals, with an expanding, loyal subscriber base and strong independent bookstore following. As a small publishing house, McSweeney’s is committed to finding new voices—Gabe Hudson, Paul Collins, Neal Pollack, J.T. Leroy, John Hodgman, Amy Fusselman, Salvador Plascencia and Sean Wilsey are among those whose early work appeared in McSweeney’s—and promoting the work of gifted but underappreciated writers, such as Lydia Davis and Stephen Dixon.
Recent books and journals have appeared on bestseller lists around the country and have won multiple literary and design awards, including stories selected for the Best American Poetry, Best American Travel Writing, the O. Henry Awards, and the Best American Short Stories. Two of our books were finalists for the National Book Critics Circle Awards. Design awards include AIGA 50 Books Award, AIGA 365 Illustration Award, and the Print Design Regional Award. McSweeney’s books have appeared in design exhibits at the Smithsonian Museum and the Pasadena Museum.

Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life
￼The Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, launched in 2001, seeks to
promote a deeper understanding of issues at the intersection of
religion and public affairs.
The Forum pursues its mission by delivering timely, impartial
information to national opinion leaders, including government
officials and journalists. As a nonpartisan, non-advocacy
organization, the Forum does not take positions on policy debates.
The Forum functions as both a clearinghouse and a town hall. As a
clearinghouse, it gathers and disseminates objective information
through polls and reports. As a town hall, it provides a neutral
venue through its various issue roundtables and briefings for
discussions of important issues where religion and domestic and
international politics intersect.
