Well the wind changed quickly, so let's welcome the first ever Hump Day Reading!
This is to replace the Sunday Reading series that I started the week before last, as more people will probably take a look during the week.
Anyhow, as before: I compile a small collection of links to letters, blog posts, articles, opinions, columns, videos, and pictures for your intellectual enjoyment.
Feedback is always welcome!
- As if you needed reminding: the exceptional Robert Fisk on the turning tide in Syria.
- If you haven't seen Stewart Lee spin a yarn before, I suggest you do so before reading how he was visited by an Olympic sponsorship SWAT team.
- UC magazine Canta columnist Jack Brooks on making easy comparisons and getting away with it.
- I went after Bibles in public schools last week. If that doesn't remind you why religion outside of personal faith is dangerous, look here (hover over the column and click to magnify).
- A recent UK poll found that support for Labour would fall 3 points should Tony Blair return from his money-raking expeditions and lead the party. Matthew Norman reminds us why.
- Sadly, the disgusting ProLife affiliate that was facing expulsion from Auckland University retained their ability to spread disingenuous and misleading information on campus. In affirmation of women's rights,this post here is quite remarkable.
- Jason Alexander, of Seinfeld fame, berates the insanity of gun ownership in the US following the tragic Colorado massacre. All hail! (As an aside, here's James Murphy or LCD Soundsystem recounting how he almost wrote for Seinfeld)Until next time - enjoy.
