Very slow news day, and I think things are only going to get worse as summer wears on:

— Justin Fox’s book is recommended, I’ll write more when I actually finish it.

— Momentum to curb abusive mortgages is slowing.

— Richard Lugar on Obama’s Cairo speech.

— Fans of nineties alt rock should not miss this and this.

— The latest blow to Gordon Brown.

What else can I say?
