Link roundup

1. Comment and win a comic book-themed prize pack.

2. "According to a new report and subsequent story in the Washington Post, in the first six months of 2011, the USPS paid $4.3 million in compensation to workers on 'standby time' – work hours where, due to low mail volume, employees show up to work but just sit in the break room. In 2009, $30.9 million was paid in 'standby' salary."

3. Grantland on the NBA: "Michael Jordan is . . . one of the most adamant owners in favor of reducing player salaries."

4. Since Olly Moss's Resistance 3 cover art is in the news today, allow me to mention that I posted wallpaper-sized versions in May.
