We are finally getting some rain in my neck of the woods, which helps our water table and my reading habits. Here are a few choice bits.
Martin has an excellent series of pieces on Christian anti-Zionism. The New Centrist is back with a vengeance, and adds to Martin's conversation.
Bob on the recurring "crisis of the left" and an attempt to state what pathological and negative values the broader movement finds itself.
Michael Totten has a book coming out on Cuba in the near future, and he has been posting choice pieces to his blog. His recent bit on the myth of Che Guevara is especially strong.
JD at Shiraz Socialist answers Roger Waters' recent nonsense.
Nick Cohen on the threat the UKIP plays to the right and left in UK politics.
Ron Radosh on the Russia's Olympic fantasies.
A. Jay Adler on academic boycotts and re-colonization by theory.
Tablet has a great interview with Art Spiegelman.
