So we’ll scratch it all down into the clay:

— Sam Stein on NIAC, J Street, and their enemies.

— When do people resist occupation?

— The suburban slums of tomorrow.

— Manu Ginobili swats a bat, needs rabies shots.

— These kind of results make me feel sorry for Chris Paul — 32 points, 18 shots, 12 assists, 5 rebounds, 2 turnovers, 1 steal and the Hornets lose to a crappy Knicks team.

— Michael Goldfarb eases comfortably back into his typical posture of deliberate obtuseness and dishonesty.
