Writing Worth Reading

[2]Ratzinger Is An Enemy Of Humanity
    Links:
      2. http://b.rw/c3gssm

Richard Dawkins | RichardDawkins.net | 22 September 2010

Powerful writing and just as hostile as you'd expect from Britain's best
  known atheist. Pope Benedict denounced as "leering old fixer" and much else
  besides. Catholics may want to look away now

[3]Writing The Southern Accent
    Links:
      3. http://b.rw/dfn1vg

Megan Mayhew Bergman | Ploughshares | 22 September 2010

Engaging plea to writers. Southern US regional identity less marked than it
  was. Southernese more about word choice and arrangement than sound. Think
  carefully before trying it, use sparingly

[4]Kafka's Last Trial
    Links:
      4. http://b.rw/anHoRh

Elif Batuman | NYT | 22 September 2010

Franz Kafka gave his manuscripts to Max Brod for burning. Instead, Brod
  published novels. Escaped to Palestine. Israeli library now suing Brod's
  daughters for papers. Yes, it's Kafka-esque. And a great story

[5]Pakistan's Crime Against Cricket
    Links:
      5. http://b.rw/bxOagT

Martin Samuel | Daily Mail | 22 September 2010

Should the Pakistani team be ostracised or thrown out of world cricket?
  Well-constructed case for the prosecution says that, in attempting to shift
  the blame, they've besmirched the entire sport

[6]Rolling In Debt
    Links:
      6. http://b.rw/a1hipH

Leander Schaerlaeckens | ESPN | 21 September 2010

European football is eating itself, but the spending won't stop. Combination
  of ego, politics and moral hazard militates against it. Added to which,
  financially prudent clubs don't do well on the pitch

[7]Stuxnet May Target Bushehr
    Links:
      7. http://b.rw/cwSKmY

Mark Clayton | CS Monitor | 21 September 2010

Enigmatic computer virus is new kind of "weaponised software", designed to
  take over and wreck industrial plant. Pattern of distribution suggests it
  may be directed at Iranian nuclear reactor

[8]We Let It Slip
    Links:
      8. http://b.rw/azqsji

Mervyn King | Open Democracy | 22 September 2010

Governor of Bank of England addresses Trades Union Congress. Apologises for
  crisis on behalf of government, banks. "There was nothing fair about the
  financial crisis. Your members are entitled to be angry"

[9]Obama's Wars
    Links:
      9. http://b.rw/9JOASV

Steve Luxenberg | WP | 22 September 2010

New Bob Woodward book tackles Obama's Afghanistan strategy. Recounts
  infighting between Petraeus, Jones, Axelrod. Depicts Obama pressing for
  quick exit strategy, not getting one. Karzai "on meds"

[10]Topic: Farming And Food
