There have been a lot of stories about interior design and building renovation this week. New York Magazine's annual home design issue was as fascinating as ever, and included pics of a "new old" brownstone in Park Slope. The NY Times profiled a Park Slope couple that renovated their townhouse in the style of a 19th Century English manor. Even behind-the-architectural-cutting-edge Buffalo, NY is getting in on the act.

The Onion Sports Network's sources have overheard some grumbling about David Ortiz, who, the last we checked, is paid $13 million to do nothing but hit.

The AV Club interviews Matt Berninger, lead singer of The National.

ESPN.com follows the bitchy war of words that is taking place between the Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson.

The New Yorker's Anthony Lane discusses Iron Man 2 and The Duel.

A Buffalo-area woman named Luann Haley told President Obama, in front of television cameras, that he was a hottie with a smokin' little body. We loves us some President Obama, but really, her opinion of his body is probably influenced by the fact that she's surrounded by fat Cheektowaga people.
