1. The two best reasons to stop wandering around bawling “Whither Sploid, the best horrifically ugly news site in the history of time, for God’s sake what were they thinking with that redesign, why, verily, must only the good die young?” every four seconds;

2. Poetry by Meghan O’Rourke on Five Chapters;

3. FSG’s new poetry blog, “The Best Words in Their Best Order” (calm down, google-fingers; it’s Coleridge) which is currently top-heavy with info on the lovely and talented Eliza Griswold, who a) has a forthcoming book of poetry, Wideawake Field, and b) really rivals Old Hag, judging by recent events, on the whole “If you don’t have anything nice to say, sit next to me, and for CHRIST’s sake what’s happening with that hair” thing;
