Sunday Night Odds and Ends

A few things on the web that caught my eye this week:

Blogging the recession.

Jonathan Rowe on Presbyterian “tone” and the founding and the Biblical roots of natural rights.

Bald Blogger is in Paris and thinking about DuBois.

John Lukacs on doing history.

A defense of archives in the Internet age.

Spring training and bling.

Keith Thomas and the pursuit of happiness in early modern England.

New blog: The Front Porch Republic offers an agrarian/conservative perspective on American culture.

Sabbaticals and the economy.

Weren’t the humanities being hit hard before the recession?
