Quick, unrelated comments

The Amazon home page today announces the Harry Potter books are now available through the Kindle Lending Library. I'm not sure that I have anything useful to say about this, other than that if you're selling ebooks and you aren't Amazon, ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.

Okay, not useful, but aren't _you_ wondering how much they paid for this? I sure am.


Second remark: news coverage of DSM-V has been a little ridiculous all along. I think, however, it has hit a level of ridiculousness deserving of some sustained mockery. If I can't find a satisfying source of mockery, I may start doing it myself. Just to be clear: I'm not proposing to mock DSM-V. I'm proposing to mock the _news coverage_ of the process. Because it's almost uniformly horrible.
