MEDIA OF THE WEEK ENDED 11/8

- •2001: A Space Odyssey -- great screen saver/background movie for a party
- •Michael Specter on fast food in USA: "fatty, salty meals remain far cheaper to produce, distribute, and buy than healthier alternatives. For that to change, America's agricultural priorities will need to fall in line with its health priorities."
