You’ll want to listen to the playlist that Daniel Radosh has helpfully assembled to accompany his list for Paper Cuts, Dwight Garner’s Times book blog, of “10 great Christian rock songs. Really. I know what you’re thinking.”

And speaking of saviors, there’s a lovely story in the Washington City Paper today about Julie Tate, ace news researcher for the Washington Post and former fact-checker at The New Yorker. I love behind-the-scenes pieces about magazines and newspapers, and this is a good one. Whatever is to become of the daily paper, reminding readers how essential classic reporting and researching skills are, and introducing them to the people who make those skills an art, will help the profession change forms more gracefully and (I hope) with more accuracy and honor.
