Am traipsing around the North East until Saturday, so these will have to do ’til then:
- Paperback Rioter has a good guest post on the Church of England’s long overdue ordination of women bishops.
- George Packer has a long, illumiating report on the parlous state of the United States Senate.
- Hampton Stevens explains why cheerleading isn’t a sport, but croquet is. Fair enough, just don’t get me started on Formula 1.
- Celia Perry, a daughter of a lesbian couple, explains what the Prop 8 ruling in California means to her.
- Meanwhile, her President remains resolutely rubbish on gay marriage.
- Anthony Burt assesses whether the British film industry is dead.
- At The Guardian, Paul Lester reckons he’s got a playlist of the best artists of 2010.
Anyone seen anything good that I haven’t spotted? Feel free to share below.
