Across the Universe - December 5, 2008

Here's your semi-weekly rundown of links. Have fun with it.

- The Monday after Thanksgiving means we republish our most popular article ever.

- If you're a geography nerd like me, you'll enjoy this game. Really, you will.

- The American auto industry crisis laid out clearer than anywhere else.

- Above all other links on this page, you absolutely must listen to this excellent interview with Beliefnet.com founder Steven Waldman on Fresh Air.

- A big week for Bryan Allain.

- Just in case Guitar Hero: World Tour and Rock Band 2 are too evil for you, there's this. As Dan Gibson put it today, "Here's another thing Christians like: Ripping off popular creative ideas and repurposing them with a faux spiritual flavor."

- Susan Isaacs' Christmas music mix.

- David Sessions on Gawker's implosion and what it means to blogging at large.
