One of the many folks who think The Wire is the best show on TV. Kohi Vinh is the Design Director of the New York Times, and writes here about why he loves the show.
Ha ha ha! What a nice pick-me-up in the middle of an otherwise stressful day.
Analysis of Matthews coverage shows a consistent bias, despite his claims.
Yeah, that sounds about right.
Battlestar Galactica Last SupperUm, in case you’re missing it – Dualla is the missing cast member from this photo (and the last unknown Cylon by definition.) This awesome graphic was in last week’s Entertainment Weekly, and it freaked me out. In a good way.
Excellent article on why strategic voting on a candidate because you think they have the “best chance of getting elected” even if you disagree with their policies just won’t work – and is bad for your party.

The other missing BSG character is Tom Zarek, played by Richard Hatch (who played Apollo on the original BSG!) — he could also be the 12th Cylon…
And Matt Hofmann pointed out Ellen Tigh is missing, too, and if she were a cylon, she could have resurrected.
I don’t think either of them is a major character compared to Dualla, though.
That’s right, I forgot about Ellen. And I love Dualla, I was so glad she and Apollo got back together (I was pissed at Starbuck!!). That actress is really beautiful. As of now, my money is on Zarek for #12 — I just think back to how he has been such an instigator in the fleet, a thorn in Roslin’s side, and a former prisoner to boot. Oh, but then, if Dualla is #12, that opens the door for Apollo and Starbuck to hook up again…dammit! I can’t wait for Season Five!!
My working theory is that the “final 5” cylons – Anders, Tigh, Tyrol, Tory Foster and the remaining unknown broke away from the others before the attack on the colonies, because they disagreed with exterminating humans. So as the attack was going to happen, they positioned themselves to help the survivors escape to find earth.
That would explain why the other 7 won’t talk about them. I need to go back and watch previous seasons with that theory in mind to see if it holds up, though…
