I meant to mention this earlier: Shawn Macomber's dispatches from Iraq have been great-- if you haven't been following them, catch up at his blog.

(I posted this note about R.W. Bradford at AmSpecBlog, but I thought I should put it here, too.)
Working at Liberty was often terrible -- Doherty's line about it being "more like being manservant to a wealthy eccentric than a journalism intern" is dead on. And I did the job very poorly, ultimately quitting midway through my internship with an email. But the long conversations with Bill were well worth the experience. He was a walking encyclopedia of the internal wranglings within the libertarian movement; he knew everybody, and had their number. (Murray Rothbard did not invent libertarianism in his living room!) I'm very, very glad to have known him, and sad to hear that he's gone. My condolences especially to his wonderful wife Kathy.

(This feature will replace "Links of the Week," and will run at unpredictable intervals.)
Charles Krauthammer rails against the mishanding of the Saddam trial.
Jonah Goldberg writes on what pop culture tells us about our moral intuitions regarding torture, and elsewhere ruminates on hidden law and torture, arriving about where I am on the legal question (undecided, but leaning against McCain's position).
David Kaspar calls out the German media for downplaying the display of a "JUDEN" banner (meant as an insult) at a soccer game.
And on a lighter note, Dorkafork plays Matthew Brady in the War on Christmas.

Mickey Kaus writes on the closing of the Spring Hill, Tennessee Saturn plant, and adds:
It is written: The Nostradamus-like "Chatterbox" predicted all this in a previous century [i.e., when Mickey Kaus wrote the Chatterbox column]. A small, colorful cult worshipping him has sprung up in Micronesia.This is utter nonsense, and I have proof.
See? It's Easter Island, not Micronesia.
