Another drama by the kitchen sink tonight:
— Minority obstructionism driven by far-right surge plays out quite differently in Australia, where they have different political institutions.
— Maybe we should send Fred Kagan to Kabul for the duration.
— Nobody seems very clear on what these extra troops will actually do.
— Streetcar lobbying in DC.
— Benford’s Law is really really weird; put this in the “don’t listen to ‘common sense’ file.”
— Sweden cutting aid to Uganda over appalling new Ugandan anti-gay law.
— Vodka advertising and defensive masculinity.
— A look ahead at the World Cup draw.
