  • If you only click one of the links on this list, make it Aida Edemariam’s piece on Sean Hodgson, a man who served 27 years in prison before his conviction was quashed.

  • Mark Easton asks whether it’s time to abolish compulsory retirement.
  • Joshua Foust writes about the response to the Taliban among ordinary Pakistanis.
  • Nicholas Schmindle knows how to save Pakistan.
  • Joshua Keating describes how the Obama administration is trying to work around Congressional restrictions on how it deals with Hamas.
  • We’re apparently halfway to causing the really, really bad type of climate change.
  • James Hrynyshyn asks whether we’re seeing the beginning of the end for coal.
  • Geoffrey S. Corn is sceptical about whether the authors of the torture memos could have a successful prosecution brought against them.
