 Like most people, I’m watching in horror as Iraq disintegrates and the Islamist barbarians of ISIS continue to gain ground. I have no particularly profound insights to offer at the moment, so would recommend readers to check out the ever-reliable Juan Cole at the aptly-titled Informed Comment blog, and one Kyle Orton at this interesting blog, previously unknown to me.

      I’ve deleted the Fake Babs off this thread.

    1987 words in a ‘comment’ – think that counts as an essay actually. i have some paint which requires careful supervision while it dries, more interesting than fake babs.
