Diversions

What I’m reading during my procrastinating:

Absent Signified has a fabulous post about Zidane, sports, racism, and timely headbutts.

The Angry Arab News Service is prolific and passionate in these dark days.

Here’s a scary valorization of Ahmadinejad from someone on the left. I was surprised to learn that Iranian sovereignty, open suppression of women and gays, and theocratic rule are things I should be defending.

What I’m procrastinating from: Putting together my contribution to the hastily convened Long Sunday symposium on democracy, which has already begun with posts by Jodi and John. I will post on Monday.
