Tuesday on the Internets

Ray’s empire expands, including the most exciting expansion of all:

Joining Glass next month will be Ray’s: The Game in the original, “pre-Obama” home for Hell-Burger (1713 Wilson Ave.), with cooks grilling burgers made from custom-ground venison, wild boar, elk, antelope, wild duck and ostrich. Why game? “No one else is doing it,” says Landrum, who sees the exotic burgers as “a great way to expand the repertoire.”

Murdoch: You get what you pay for, incl in press:

[People who rewrite, without attribution, in the name of “fair use”] are not investing in journalism. They are feeding off the hard-earned efforts and investments of others. And their almost wholesale misappropriation of our stories is not “fair use.” To be impolite, it’s theft.

This is spectacular:

And finally, just because I love Hannah Arendt:

“For Hannah Arendt, the autonomy of politics is an attempt to preserve a space for human spontaneity, the freedom to act in unexpected ways absent the constraints of economic needs or social conformities.” [Harpers]
