Сборная солянка.
  • Смешная и умная рецензия неповторимого P.J.O'Rourke на мемуары Хиллари. "Boring others is a form of aggression, and Hillary attacks her public with the weapon of brutal dullness." Или вот ещё:
    After all, life revolves around Hillary. "In my own life I have been a wife, mother, daughter, sister, in-law, student, lawyer, children's rights activist, law professor, Methodist, political advisor, citizen and so much else." So very much else. "I was raised to love my God and my country, to help others, to protect and defend the democratic ideals that have inspired and guided free people for more than 200 years," a slap in the face to those of us who were raised to say please and thank you and not track mud into the house. Little wonder that when Hillary meets Queen Elizabeth, "She reminded me of my own mother."

  • Хорошая статья о том, как преподают и учат в американских аспирантурах на гуманитарных факультетах (на примере Йеля).
  • В честь 75-летия первого издания Оксфордского словаря (OED), Джон Симпсон, его редактор, предлагает читателю 10 интересных этимологий.
  • Очень интересная статья о современной постколониальной Африке и её проблемах. Highly recommended (спасибо анониму, к-й кинул мне ссылку на неё в комментах некоторое время назад).
