The New York Times’ new public editor takes a look at how books are picked for the Book Review section (after 6 of the 61 “Notable” non-fiction books were written by Times’ reporters)

Oakland writer Ishmael Reed has a nice tribute to Richard Pryor titled, “Richard Pryor -- comic genius who let Hollywood use him.”

“Hollywood didn't kill Richard Pryor, but it certainly contributed to his demise. Remember "The Toy," the film where he was cast as a white kid's "toy"? No wonder he turned to freebasing.”
