MacWHAAAAAAT?????

"What a bizarre day. I'm sitting here watching my email fill up with message after message from people from so many different times and places of my life, all congratulating me for the astonishing good fortune of receiving a MacArthur Fellowship. Not to mention a flurry of texts and tweets, and I haven't had the energy to even look at Facebook." Cartoonist and Graphic Memoirist Alison Bechdel (previously on MetaFilter: 1, 2, 3, 4) has won the prestigious MacArthur Genuis grant, giving her the opportunity to dig into her archives for a previous comic she drew in 2004 to conclude her reaction blog post.

The Wisdom of the Crowd

Fabrice Muamba returns to Bolton Wanders. Six weeks after suffering a cardiac arrest in the middle of a football game against Spurs (which left him 'clinically dead for 78 minutes'), Bolton Wanderer's Fabrice Muamba walks out in front of his home crowd before last night's game against Spurs.
