Welcome to the first ever 'Sunday Reading', in which I compile a small collection of links to letters, blog posts, articles, opinions, columns, videos, and pictures for your intellectual enjoyment.
Of course, you don't have to read this on a Sunday.
Feedback is always welcome!
- The incredible Robert Fisk continues his impeccable journalistic career with a tirade against the Egyptian military which is still holding the Revolution frozen.
- On the same note, The Independent's blog section keeps turning out some gems, like Emmanuel Stoakes' piece on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict's impact on children.
- The New Republic hit headlines this week with its rather disparaging 'Something's Rotten' cover showing Kate Middleton with yellowing teeth. On the inside though, Eric A. Posner goes after freemarket capitalism rather beautifully.
- Grant Duncan of Massey University makes reasonable sense of the Maori Party/water rights/asset sales debacle.
- From the excellent Letters Of Note - which I strongly urge your read from start to finish - comes a hilarious complaint about beavers and dams.
- For those interested in Libya's recent election, Foreign Policy has an impeccable summary of reading materials on the topic.
- And finally, some cultural hits from The Guardian. Peter Bradshaw becomes a giggling girl over the new Spiderman flick (which stars Andrew Garfield, who was in the startling Red Riding). And Woody Guthrie gets the birthday shout-out he deserves.
