[2]Alone, With Words
Jed Perl | New Republic | 9 June 2010
Publication has become so quick and easy that we have lost the sense of
writing as a private act, with its own purpose and value, quite distinct
from the public act of being read
[3]Belgium's Struggle With Federalism
Charlemagne | Economist | 9 June 2010
Failure of federalism has brought Belgium to brink of social and economic
collapse. Europeans won't stand for large-scale transfers of wealth from
north to south, even within a single country
[4]The End Of Men
Hannah Rosin | Atlantic | July 2010
US parents prefer daughters over sons. Even Asia following suit. Why?
Because women outperform men in advanced, post-industrial economies. More
productive, more employable, better educated
[5]US Should Look To South Africa
Mark Kende | Christian Science Monitor | 10 June 2010

and Rafsanjani should be serving prison terms
