Lists of Note is a new site from Shaun Usher, proprietor of Letters of Note. It posts interesting lists, running the gamut from funny to poignant, mostly by famous people, though other sources crop up. Here's a sampling of lists: Johnny Cash, Walt Whitman, Eero Saarinen, Don Carman, Marilyn Monroe and F. Scott Fitzgerald.

An interesting site - although I am disappointed they missed the opportunity to code the backend in LISP.

I mentally read Johnny Cash's list in Cash's own voice, and it made me smile.
