Front-page realities have intruded into my life. Busy couple of days here.... In the meantime, here are some links - nothing too long - well worth your while. I don't necessarily agree with all of them, so take them with a grain of salt. Nonetheless, they're all well done.

BLDBLOG on the "Akwizgran Discrepancy."

Cass Sunstein on the precautionary principle.

Newsweek's Stuart Taylor
saying give the torture enablers a break.

Chris Floyd on the Nangarhar wedding massacre.

Sic Semper Tyrannis on the Pakistan border situation.

Errol Morris on the Iran missile test and photo manipulation.

Tony Karon on the phony Iran saber rattles.

Jonathan Schwarz
recalls wise words on energy by Jimmy Carter from 29 years ago.

An academic piece on Deweyan institutional economics.

And, via James Wolcott, the quote of the day:
"Things have deteriorated to the point where staffers at People are mystified by the inanity of the political press corps."--Bob Somerby, Daily Howler
