Of Interest

Good articles seem to be like buses - nothing at all and then lots in a slap at once. There has been a dearth of linkable material in recent weeks, but maybe the worm is turning (heh!):

There is an excellent pro-secularist article by Salman Rushdie in the Guardian today, and an interesing one by Naomi Klein on the US foreign policy. Sadly, as if the horrific tale of Mukhtaran Bibi is not enough, a new Human Rights Watch report tells of shocking sexual abuse of women in the DRC. Perhaps if Malawi's president hadn't been in such a hurry to turn the parliamentary building into his private mansion, he wouldn't be having this trouble. And finally, this is why I Love Jay Rayner
