  • Staying in the hip hop groove (sorry cjcjc!), Marc Lynch’s post on how a rap beef relates to American foreign policy is just spectacular. (also check out Spencer Ackerman’s response)
  • In news which isn’t news… Mexico’s drug war is still failing.
  • Brad Plumer discusses whether American chickens are being pumped with far too many antibiotics.
  • At Feministing, Vanessa discusses a piece on the gendered messages in girls’ video games.
  • Chutzpah alert: The president of a state with a history of genocide denial has the audacity to think he’s in a position to start throwing the g-word at other countries.
  • Harry’s Place’s Edmund Standing authors a report into the BNP’s online activities.
  • Mark Easton discusses the DWP’s strategy for an ageing population.
  • Stephen Faris wonders whether the next conflict between India & Pakistan could be caused by… climate change.
  • And Everett True pens a great tribute to deceased rock critic Steven Wells
