In case you haven’t already…

Here are a few of the items I enjoyed this week:

  1. Tony Blair holds a summit on gun crime but somehow fails to invite Rob Fisher: “I know the solution, and it is really very easy and straightforward. Drum roll please. Are you ready? Legalise drugs.  No-one ever got shot over cigarettes, alcohol, or anything you can buy for £2.99 from Boots.”

  2. Jeremy Black has a couple of good articles on the First World War.  Here and here.

  3. Also from the Social Affairs Unit, William Rubinstein offers an historical perspective on the current cash for honours scandal.

  4. Live Aid: “Fund-raising event which helps needy African dictators enlarge their fleets of Mercedes, while simultaneously enabling white, midole class people to demonstrate conspicuous compassion.” Harry Phibbs reviews How to be Right: The Essential Guide to Making Lefty Liberals History.

  5. Stewart Brand, environmentalist heretic. (hat-tip: Instapundit)

  6. Want to get ahead in the USA?  Easy: brag.  OK, so that’s a bit of an over-simplification of a thought-provoking, if long, article.  (Hat-tip: Instapundit)

  7. An academic bemoans the state of British education before the Guardian journalist interviewing him proceeds to prove it: “It’s superficial stuff, fine for the general populous,...” Oooh.

  8. “At last, a machine fully compatible with Windows Vista.” Heh.
