[2]Russian Spy Caper: Funny Or Not
Robert Baer | Time | 29 June 2010
Former CIA agent mocks Russians' old-fashioned methods—but worries that
Kremlin's strategic thinking hasn't advanced much since the Cold War either
[3]Chicago's Guns
Editorial | Chicago Tribune | 28 June 2010
American cities confront Supreme Court's ruling on Monday that gun ownership
is a "fundamental right", as much so as freedom of speech. Meanwhile, in
Chicago, 23 are shot and three killed over a weekend
[4]Danone Woos World's Poor
Christina Passariello | WSJ | 25 June 2010
Fascinating, I-never-knew-that report on French food company's drive to make
products attractive to African families living on $1 a day—and turn a
profit. One success: ten-cent, 50-gram tube of drinkable yogurt
[5]Does Camille Paglia Make Humans Feel Sexy?
Tom Scocca | Slate | 29 June 2010
Wonderfully funny pastiche. Supposed machine analysis of Camille Paglia's
journalism. Top and tail each piece with a new sex-related twist, and the
rest is belligerent boilerplate

for the ages. That said, I have a sneaking preference for the Chandleresque
winner of the Detective-fiction section
