Denis Dutton, founding editor of the esteemed web digest Arts & Letters Daily, passed away today at age 66 after a battle with prostate cancer. We echo the sentiments of Three Quarks Daily that Dutton’s site set the gold standard that we have aspired to match in our own curating of slightly different intellectual content on the web. Denis Dutton, 9 February 1944 – 28 December 2010

CODA of Dutton's Note: Amazon announced this morning that the latest version of the Kindle has surpassed Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows as its biggest selling product of all time. In just five months, new Kindle replaces ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ as best-selling product in Amazon’s history
