From this week's Harper's magazine email, there is a mention of metafilter (more inside).

The Weekly Review is drawn from major news sources such as the New
York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times,
Reuters, the Associated Press, and various news websites. It is not a
weblog, and I'm sorry to say that it would be much too complicated to
post links to particular items (I tend to read newspapers on paper).
If you would like to read more about a story, try searching
the following list of frequent sources., by the
way, will search other news sites if you click the "Web" option on the
search page. If you can't find a story, email your query to

I can forward you the whole thing if you want

That's impressive, coming from Harper's. It would be difficult to think of a well-written monthly magazine with more integrity. Though I must admit the haphazard nature of the list - specially the ananova link - sort of ruins the effect...

Does anyone else find the backhanded slap at links (I tend to read newspapers on paper) sort of strange in an email newsletter? It's almost as if the writer can't be bothered to let you know where they got their info except in the most general of manners. Odd.

I don't find it too odd coming from Harpers. To me, alot of their content, particularly the editorial content, comes across very 'holier than thou'. That being said, I do like the feature articles, I was reading the Aral Sea article today at lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it.
