  • You’re not going to get anything from me about the MP expenses scandal, so if you can stomach it, here’s Alistair Graham and here’s Polly Toynbee.
  • In the wake of the US’ bombing blunder in Afghanistan, Myra MacDonald writes about the civilians who get caught in the middle
  • Pete Guither on how legalising drugs will diminish the bloody might of the black market.
  • Meanwhile, President Obama isn’t going to lift the federal ban on needle exchange. Scott Morgan explains why it’s a maddening decision.
  • Attention Star Trek fans; cloaking technology is now one step closer to reality! Now all we need is warp drive!
  • Borut Grgic on the importance of Azerbajian.
  • Stephen Walt on whether we should negotiate with the Afghan Taliban.
  • For anyone who’s a fan of Conor Oberst, there’s a pretty nifty-looking documentary up at CauseCast.
  • And just about the only person on Earth left defending Jacqui Smith is a satirist. Make of that what you will.
