There’ll be some proper sentences here tomorrow, but since there’s not much chance of me finishing the post I’m currently writing by the end of the day, here’s some stuff to click:
- So it turns out that Durban II went exactly the way a lot of people suspected. Well done to those who walked out on Ahmadinejad, though it’s a missed opportunity that he wasn’t pelted with shoes.
- Conor Foley worries that the prosecution of the President of Sudan is more about politics than hard evidence of genocide.
- James Hrynyshyn on the problem with Twitter.
- Andrew Sullivan has more on the torture memos.
- Like Seth Freeman, I’m not sure that Israel building a ‘museum of tolerance’ on top of a Muslim cemetary is a particularly sensitive thing to do.
- You can get funding for anything these days: Scientist Wants To Test Abraham Lincoln’s Bloodstained Pillow For Cancer.
- At The F Word, Laura Woodhouse shares a piece on feminism & motherhood.
- I like the sound of the Lib Dems’ tax plans.
- And at FP Passport, Joshua Keating asks the most important question of the day: does Jackie Chan really hate freedom?
That’s it, I’m afraid. There’ll be more tomorrow.
