Anonymous | Economist | 3 September 2011

Solid, sober, sensible analysis of decade since 9/11. Relentless fightback
  by America, mistakes, terrible sacrifices, new dangers created, freedoms
  lost, a sense of moving on. There can be no return to innocence nor end to
  vigilance [6]Comments

Tyler Durden | Zero Hedge | 4 September 2011

Blunt, opinionated analysis. With the economy in the doldrums, American
  consumers should at least be getting the benefit of lower oil prices. But
  prices haven't fallen. Here's why not. And where it leaves the oil-dependent

Mark Buchanan | New Scientist | 5 September 2011

"Human thinking, as many of us know, often fails to respect the principles
  of classical logic." Nonetheless, it's quite a surprise to find that a
  system of logic based on quantum mechanics can describe our thought
  processes better [10]Comments

John Carlin | Independent | 5 September 2011

Gripping 9/11 retrospective focusing on failure of CIA to pass critical
  information to FBI. "The judgement I made, and which I shall always regret,

Audrey Bilger | LA Review of Books | 5 September 2011

In praise of Jane Austen. Disparaged by VS Naipaul recently ("'Who’s VS
  Naipaul? Nobody ever says, 'Who’s Jane Austen?'"), encumbered by "woman
  writer" label, rescued by two new books that claim her as a great and wise
  author [14]Comments

Jon Henley | Guardian | 3 September 2011

Sacked British sports presenter Ortis Deley calls amputee runner "the
  fastest man on no legs". Fine tradition of gaffes dating back to David
  Coleman. Among them: "Moses Kiptanui, the 19-year-old Kenyan who turned 20 a
  few weeks ago" [16]Comments
