The San Francisco Chronicle travel section had a story about Death Valley today. Not very detailed, pretty superficial (somehow Dante's View and Rhyolite weren't mentioned, let alone Titus Canyon). The author could have written it sitting on the can with a few books or park guides stacked on the edge of the bathtub (I could have written it sitting on the can, period).
But it's a nice appetizer. If folks want to know more, ask away and the many DV enthusiasts here will be happy to respond.
