Here are the latest things getting my attention online:

  • If you're a lover of language and words, this is an essential resource - the Online Etymology Dictionary. Here you can find out where words in the English language come from. For example, the word "earth" comes from the Old English eorĂ°e, which means "ground, soil, dry land."
  • Slate has a story about the legacy of Ike Turner. It's written by none other than Donald Fagen of Steely Dan! Donald discusses Ike's ups and downs, warts and all.
