Link roundup

1. An assertion that Detroit will soon close half its public schools, leading to 60+ kids in each class. (Schools in Los Angeles face a prospect nearly as dire.) Via.

2. Maybe it's just because I don't like brainteasers that much, or maybe it's because I haven't enjoyed a Spielberg movie in at least 10 years, but I find it a little hard to believe that people (as opposed to marketers pretending to be fans) have really spent so much effort deciphering clues about the JJ Abrams/Spielberg movie Super 8.

3. McDonald's inedible new oatmeal apparently contains more sugar than a Snickers bar.
