in all seriousness

We live in a dangerous world. Violence has become too common. I follow the news with difficulty, since the media generally are poorly informed on what they report. So I cherish the occasional enlightening article or analysis. Today was a good day: I found two worth keeping.

From The New Yorker, THE AGITATOR - Oriana Fallaci directs her fury toward Islam.

From Augean Stables, DEMOPATHS & DUPES - Demopaths are people who use democratic language and invoke human rights only when it serves their interests, and not when it calls for self-criticism or self-restraint.
