slow news

I don't know why, but this New York Times article about the Martha Stewart sentencing (5m/5m/30k) is about the best thing I've read today:
In the plucky style for which the self-made millionaire is known, Ms. Stewart urged people to buy her magazine, and to encourage advertisers to keep supporting her products. In fact, after her sentence was announced, the price of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, her company, soared . . . yielding Ms. Stewart a paper profit of $355,000. [nyt]

Seriously, this article is packed full of gems, quotes, and added context. Or, I'm just terrifically bored and avoidant.
