Welcome to the fifth issue of Hump Day Reading, where 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!
- The splendid Mr Glenn Greenwald, formerly of the wondrous Salon.com, has jumped ship to the US version of The Guardian - and has taken his acerbic tones with him.
- Also from The Guardian, but just as poignant and prescient: the Israeli trial and ruling that uncovered the extent to which the IDF terrorises the Palestinian people.
- Many of you can probably tell that I am huge fan of Christopher Hitchens. It's coming up on the one year anniversary of his death, and Emily Landau has some wonderful insight in to The Hitch's deathbed writing.
- Carrying on in the same vein, many of you may also know I'm also a huge fan of F. Scott Fitzgerald. So, Hitch writing about Fitzgerald? It's a heavenly vision!
- Some slightly humourous bits and bobs, too, today. Who knew that Photoshop could make Mitt Romney look so...normal?
- From the NYT photography blog, an NPPA lawyer answers some good questions on photojournalism.- And finally, Nelson Jones for lefty rag the New Statesman asks some interesting questions about atheism as movement, rather than a personal position.
