Listen to me (or rather to them)

  • Grammar Girl
    Pearls of wisdom that are needed so.
  • Jordan, Jesse, Go! | Maximum Fun
    America's Radio Sweetheart and the Boy Detective at their raunchy best. Yes, I know this should be a guy-thing.
  • Wait, wait don't tell me
    Will it survive a post-Bush return to normality? Will we all?
  • This American Life
    An oldie but a goodie.
  • The Slate Gabfest
    Three liberals trying to avoid saying the word 'F*!%' (with some success) while talking about politics and other stuff you should know.
  • The Vinyl Cafe
    A northern version of Prarie Home Companion, without all the distraction of a presenter getting kicked out of his neighborhood for being an ass.
  • The Sound of Young America
    The interview with Greg Behrendt about his wife, the gym, the adorably cute guy from The Office, and the pass is stop-in-your-tracks hilarious. It's hard to find a bad interview.

Maybe all of the American tree-trimmers with tendencies toward topping were thrown out of the States and landed in foreign cities to assume their topping ways.

Having heard the horticulturalist's dire warnings about this type of pruning though, I do have to admit that the tree branches and leaves seem to grow back just fine after a few months.

Yeah, but as one of those websites you linked to suggests, they do seem to get even more "shaggy" a few years after their haircuts.
