A mixed bag tonight as my progeny have worn me out and I cannot yet concentrate on my own writing, so I’m going where the mood strikes me:
Wiggins, the Wohlstetterian defense analyst at Opposed System Design comments on the observations on strategy and theory made by Sonny, the USAF blogger at F-X Based.
Collounsbury and the merry band of Orientalists at ‘Aqoul have dealt extensively with the Wafa Sultan -Ibrahim al-Khouli exhange (Eerie) and have provided the full, translated, al-Jazeera transcript (Meph) and followed up by highlighting a related MEMRI disussion over at Winds of Change ( Col ).
The Drs. Eide at The Eide Neurolearning Blog discuss the recent research demonstrating different brain maturation rates between high and average IQ children ( fodder for Dan’s grad psych paper, I think).

Dr. Lubos Motl on the Clinton administration’s role in killing the Superconducting Supercollider, which dealt a critical blow to American leadership in experimental physics.
Simon at Simon World posts on the self-promotion of China’s public security ministry ( can you imagine what the Soviet MVD would have been like with a blog ?) and some American senators talking out of both sides of their mouth in China.
