  • Five reasons why we shouldn't expect too much from the G20 summit. I guess a sixth would be George Bush's lame-ducktitude.
  • The NY Times reports rather gleefully on a Sarah Palin-related hoax that revealed 'the shoddiness in the traditional news media and especially the blogosphere.' Fine, but the blogosphere is far more efficient at correcting mistakes than the traditional media.
  • Superb photo essay of American troops in action in Afghanistan's Korengal Valley. (H/t Peace like a River.)
  • Awful, awful, awful: Somali girl raped and stoned to death.
  • Here are seven pages of questions you need to answer if you want to work in the Obama Administration.
  • Putin tells Sarkozy he wants to 'hang Saakashvili by the balls'. And the conversation only gets better from there... (H/t Passport.)
