I'd like to give William Hague a few assurances as well.
How times change.  In Tony Blair's dog days, his refusal to push for a ceasefire in the Israel-Hizbullah-Lebanon war was in contrast to the stance of David Cameron's newly detoxified Conservative party, with William Hague denouncing the destruction of much of southern Lebanon as "disproportionate".  To begin with, it looked as though the Conservatives allied with the Liberal Democrats woul

Bits and Pieces - November 28, 2012
What is our reporters learning? Not very much when they've got what they consider a good story, it seems. They thought that NASA had a big discovery on Mars, but it appears they heard wrong and didn't bother to check. Or they get handed a hot document by the usual suspects in Vienna and present it as solid evidence of Iran's nuclear program, apparently without checking. Ezra Klein interviews Chrys

Lincoln: Reliving and Relieving the White Man’s Burden
I am looking forward to see Lincoln, the recent film by Steven Spielberg. I want to see it for purely selfish reasons: I am a huge Daniel Day Lewis fan. He plays Uncle Abe and from what I see from the previews, his performance is spellbinding. Those who have followed along with me in this blogging journey from the beginning, know that I used to be a working actor (in what now seems to me like a ”p

Myanmar Rare Earths Stuff
One of my favorite novels is Graham Greene’s Our Man in Havana.  If you are not familiar with the basic plot, a British expatriate living in Havana, desperate for a little extra cash, passes off sketches of vacuum cleaner parts to MI6, claiming they depict a secret military installation in the mountains. (The screen grab, from Carol Reed’s cinematic adaptation, is from a magnificent blog post on

The New Right’s Rabid Watchdog
Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan evolved from your typical wingnut in the House to the man who might have been vice president. A boyishly handsome pol who, with a twinkle in his eye, proposes gutting Social Security and Medicare, Ryan is walking proof of the extent to which the Right has infiltrated America’s mainstream. What was once repugnant has become respectable, but it didn’t happen overnight.

Even Some Conservatives Now Favor Spreading the Wealth
By @TedFrier When Hostess swirled its last cupcake and packed its last cream-filled Twinkie, conservatives like George F. Will were quick to scold striking workers for not surrendering themselves to the reality that "market forces will have their way" by swallowing a 50% wage cut as the price of keeping their jobs. And when Bain Capital bought, and then outsourced to China, a Freeport, Illinois au

The red dwarf Gliese 581 continues to draw the eye, whether or not the putative world Gl 581 g is there or not. The latter, whose existence has been the subject of controversy, would occupy a tantalizing place in its star’s habitable zone, though in some models the planet Gl 581 d might also skirt the outer edge of the HZ.
