I’ve been reading Crooked Timber recently; a good literate weblog. Today’s interesting post, from Kieran Healy: Frustration is not a Strategy. Well worth a read for some context on today’s Middle East, and the fundamental problem with those ‘kill ’em all’ proposals that keep cropping up from the hawks.
Blogs: Nathan Cochrane, Aussie journalist for The Age and writer of a very interesting weblog — has won quite a lot of money on a TV gameshow! I think the term is ‘goodonyamate’, if I recall correctly ;)
(Pity he couldn’t have fixed the BlogShares listing first though.)
