  • Orhan Pamuk faces criminal charges for mentioning the 1 million Armenians murdered in Turkey at the start of the last century. In the weekend’s Observer, Nouritza Matossian writes, “They say ‘incident’. To me it’s genocide.” (Via The Literary Saloon.)
  • Martha Stewart’s prison regimen includes scrubbing toilets for $.12/hr, teaching the other inmates yoga, and reading Bob Dylan’s Chronicles.
  • From Sean Carman’s Dylanland, inspired by the Dylan autobiography: “Stealing isn’t looked down upon in folk music. Hell, it’s an honored tradition. Look at Ramblin’ Jack Elliott. By all rights he should be famous.”
