Daily Links, May 16, 2011

Hmmm....not much out there for today.... Enjoy a few monday links, anyway.

NOT TAIWAN: The flooding in the US got my attention this week. First, at DKOS two good posts, this one with maps of the floods and affected areas, and this one on the River's inevitable move to a shorter route to the sea. That would be a catastrophe of world-historical importance. There is a flowery image of the Mississippi's many beds, and best of all, a link to a piece on the area from 1987 by America's greatest science writer, John McPhee, 27 pages of lovely prose in The New Yorker.
Don't miss the comments below! And check out my blog and its sidebars for events, links to previous posts and picture posts, and scores of links to other Taiwan blogs and forums! Delenda est, baby.
