Slow posting for a while

I am traveling throughout next week, so light if any posting till the middle of the month. In the meantime:

1. Isn't Alan Johnston great? Great TV interviews since his release.

2. The Christopher Hitchens article on Tunisia I asked about is online, and it's awful.

3. When khawagas have no shame.
