Selected Reading (29/01/10)

January 29, 2010 at 8:41 am | Posted in Misc. | 3 Comments

This’ll be the last post for a week or so – essays to finish, job interviews to attend, etc etc. So until I reappear with some words of my own, here are some other folks:

  • Mark Easton wonders what’s wrong with inequality
  • Johann Hari on the corruption in Washington D.C.
  • Alex Massie on George Osborne’s belief that he can make us behave.
  • David Axe wonders why China is rigging artillery to commercial cargo ships.
  • Daniel Larison discusses GOP obstructionism
  • Charli Carpenter asks why there was so little foreign policy content in Obama’s SOTU.
  • And after Chris Matthews forgot Obama was black, Ta-Nehisi Coates just remembered that Chris Matthews was white.

Catch you in a bit.

  1. Let’s not forget this from yesterday:

    What’s it an interview for? Have a good one :)

    • A teaching job somewhere in The South. It’s a little ridiculous; here I am, having only taught properly for six weeks, and now I’m expected to apply for jobs. You can see how schools get lumbered with lousy teachers, can’t you?!

      • Good luck! I’m sure you’ll do a great job.
