Gene's weekly column, Below the Beltway, is teriffic -- but the best thing are his weekly chats, in which he and his audience occasionally direct me to internet wonders such as this and this.
More importantly, this week, Gene confirmed that the only proper response to the person reclining their airline seat in front of you is passive-aggressiveness:

Gene Weingarten: . . . . I believe it is never acceptable to recline your seat in the plane, unless no one is seated behind you, or it is the middle of the night and everyone is asleep. No degree of incline is acceptable. When someone does this to me, I engage in a war of knee jabs. And I always resist the urge to recline my own seat to get away from this assault. That is only passing on the rudeness.
I just wish he had a blog.
