[5]Smash The Ceiling
    Links:
      5. http://b.rw/p0OiiB

James Surowiecki | New Yorker | 25 July 2011

Crisp analysis. Debt ceiling should be eliminated. Comprehensive budget
  resolutions make it an anachronism. "The only reason we need to lift the
  debt ceiling, after all, is to pay for spending that Congress has already
  authorized" [6]Comments

[7]Consequences Of A Moderated Far Right In Europe
    Links:
      7. http://b.rw/ph9HvC

Anonymous | Stratfor / Real Clear World | 26 July 2011

On Anders Behring Breivik. "The irony for Europe is that the same process
  that brings the far right into the mainstream leaves its most extremist
  elements without the moderating influences of their now supposedly
  legitimate peers" [8]Comments

[9]Evolution Right Under Our Noses

      9. http://b.rw/r7vOQQ

Carl Zimmer | NYT | 25 July 2011

  Munshi-South has tracked elephants in central Africa and proboscis monkeys
  in the wilds of Borneo. But for his most recent expedition, he took the A
  train" [10]Comments

Philip Sherwell | Telegraph | 24 July 2011

Perhaps you have to be interested in bigamist dukes to get the most out of
  this one, but if you are, it really is a treat. Starring the impoverished
  Duke of Manchester, a spearfishing gun, a model, a bar, and Michael Jackson

[13]Greece Needs A New Political Culture
    Links:
      13. http://b.rw/rbkzC5

Gideon Rachman | FT | 25 July 2011

Greek elites accept that country has to change. Political system seen as
  corrupt. Economy in fourth year of recession. But sense of entitlement and
  inertia endures. Still feels as though everybody wants a subsidy from the
  state [14]Comments

[15]Neglecting The Lithuanian Holocaust
    Links:
      15. http://b.rw/nRai6D

Timothy Snyder | NYRB | 25 July 2011

Holocaust memorial defaced with the words "Hitler was right". Nobody seems
  to have noticed or cared much. Tells you plenty about Lithuania's
  indifference to its Holocaust history. Outrage is reserved for victims of
  Soviet occupation [16]Comments
