Nothing to do with the article above, but I just read your new piece on retributive justice and felt compelled to recommend this quick read. It's the strongest criticism of retribution I've ever read. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1451683405?ie=UTF8&tag=wwwsamharri02-20&linkCode=xm2&camp=1789&creativeASIN=1451683405

Want a quiet vacation someplace far away from the tourist trail? Try London, right now. It's emptier than it ever has been, thanks to the Olympics - - really.

Loaning money to very poor people at very high interest rates for profit: Are you ending poverty or are you Money Mart? You can be either, but don't write off high-risk lending to the poorest.

Why French Children Don't Throw Food -- Unless They're Throwing It At a Gendarme And Their Dad Is the Law-And-Order Head Of State. It's a longer title, but more accurate.

Today in London we'll learn just how similar Somalia is to Afghanistan - - both in its constellation of problems, and in its mutually contradictory slate of solutions.
