- It turns out that you can run opinion polls anywhere these days. Spencer Ackerman interprets the results from the tribal areas of Pakistan.
- How do you beat the Taliban? Give ’em all iPhones. They can’t get enough of ’em.
- It’s a few days old now, but Monbiot’s piece on prisons is very good.
- Over at Tikkun, Jerome Slater has penned one of the strongest, most thorough critiques of Israel’s attack on Gaza that I’ve read.
- Menzies Campbell argues for 5 liberal freedoms.
- Could ecstacy be a treatment for PTSD?
- John S. Wilkins continues demolishing the Darwin myths.
- Red Pepper talks to the fabulous novelist David Peace.
- Miley Cyrus is going to destroy Radiohead…
