For a World Wide Web "portal" site to all sorts of writings about the arts, philosophy, and other humanities, check out Arts & Letters Daily: An Updated Report of News and Reviews at www.cybereditions.com/aldaily/. The site includes links to publications ranging from Boston Review to Le Monde to Wilson Quarterly. It also features dozens of constantly changing links to articles and topics. A recent day's offering included links to pieces about the demise of Duke University's vaunted English Department, obituaries for the novelist Iris Murdoch, and a British review of Careless Love: The Unmaking of Elvis Presley, by Peter Guralnick.

Those on the other side of the two-cultures split might want to check out a sister site, Scitech Daily (www.scitechdaily.com), which provides links to publications ranging from Air & Space to The Why Files and to science-oriented pieces appearing in a wide variety of places. Recent offerings ranged from articles on the Victorians' abiding interest in mesmerism to the supposed side effects of mercury-amalgam dental fillings to analyses of missile-defense plans.
