@__chrislee’s sex-addiction article is up online: “Sex addiction” remains a controversial designation—often dismissed as a myth or providing talk-show punchlines thanks to high-profile lotharios such as Dominique Strauss-Kahn and Tiger Woods. But compulsive sexual behavior, also called hypersexual disorder, can systematically destroy a person’s life much as addictions to alcohol or ...
@moorehn stat du jour
Heidi Moore joined Twitter on November 27, 2008, which means she has a couple of days to go before her third anniversary. But she’s already reached a different milestone: about an hour ago, she posted her 50,000th tweet. (A link to a slideshow of otters, if you must know.) That’s 50,000 tweets in 1,093 days. Which works out to more than 45 tweets a day, 365 days per year, for three...

Fat is the new fit
simon-brady: Unfitness is a lot like fitness; you really have to work at it. With fitness, you struggle and pant and sweat for weeks without losing weight or getting any faster and then suddenly, the next run you do doubles your stamina. You lift a few more weights and those weird veins pop out of your biceps when you’re asleep. From then on, you just get fitter and fitter. Well I find...

The original Julie Moos post was highly misleading in one respect — she made it seem as though Romenesko hadn’t blockquoted two full paragraphs in this post, when in fact he had used blockquote. I know Moos was misleading because Jack Shafer said that she “pointed to a recent example from Romenesko’s work in which he ran whole sentences from a Chicago Tribune story in his...
