I have a Netcast up at Liberal Conspiracy in the ‘morrow, but there was quite a bit of overspill, so here’s stuff I also could’ve included:

  • In The New Yorker, Atul Gawande has a magnificent essay on incarceration in America.
  • Matthew Cain describes his experience as a shareholder in the democratic experiment that is Ebbsfleet United football club.
  • Rejoice! The world might not end after all! Doomsayer extraordinaire Noriel Roubini kinda likes the Tim Geithner bank rescue plan.
  • Megan at Jezebel tackles the shady practice of trolling for prostitutes on the internet.
  • Stephen Walt asks: do the troops love Obama or hate him?
  • Dave Neiwert on the grotesque stalker antics of Bill O’Reilly’s news team.
  • Charles Homans writes about the story of Culture11, a now-defunct US conservative website which is much missed.
  • Justin Fox & Jon Taplin point out that Paul Krugman isn’t God.
  • At The Argument, Roseli Tardeli makes the Catholic case for condoms.
  • The NYT’s Room For Debate blog discusses the legacy of Sylvia Plath.
