I was a little too busy getting my life rolling again for the new semester to spend much time on the blog today. And now it’s Wing Night at the bar. But I have some stuff that I want to share, so I’m going to do it Tab Dump-style a la Ezra Klein.
- China: A Threat to or Threatened by Democracy? by Edward Friedman in Dissent Magazine
- Five minutes to midnight on a two-state solution by Thomas Friedman in the Daily Star (which seems to be back up and running as of today)
- Alms for the Press? by Jack Schafer in Slate
- In defense of partition by Avirama Golan in Haaretz
- Iran’s Postmodern Beast in Gaza by Robert Kaplan in The Atlantic
Looks like sort of a mainstream list, doesn’t it? Oh well. That’s what I’ve been reading today. Enjoy. I’ll be back tomorrow.
