  • This article on US Israel policy is creating a lot of talk on the US blogosphere. Glenn Greenwald asks, 'Is there any other significant issue in American political life...where...citizens split almost evenly in their views, yet...the leaders of both parties adopt identical lockstep positions which leave half of the citizenry with no real voice?'
  • Foreign Policy magazine has a new suite of blogs, including from Dan Drezner, one of my favourite foreign policy bloggers. Go to his blog and look just below the banner to find links to the 11 other new blogs (!!) FP is running.
  • Also in FP, some very sobering reading on climate change. '...global warming suddenly feels less like a huge problem, and more like an Oh-My-God Emergency.'
  • Vote of confidence in the regional economy, or just another flailing national carrier?: Garuda Indonesia doubles down.
  • The most interesting statistic I've read today, on who edits Wikipedia entries: '...the most active 2%, which is 1400 people, have done 73.4% of all the edits.' (H/t Sullivan.)
