There a great article on blogging over on the Guardian site here. It's a good read and I personally cannot believe it has taken me so long to find Norm's blog, which I hereby link.

In other news, more madness in Turkmenistan, first confirmed bird flu death, a bank robber who can't leave her mobile alone, and a drugs bust in Bhutan*. Also, more on the Denmark affair here:
"Some Muslims are asking for an apology pointing to a lack of respect. They're not asking for respect; they're asking for subordination - for us as non-Muslims to follow Muslim taboos in the public domain."

There is also a very good article on the shocking mission creep of taser use here. What started out as a last resort for cases where violence was a serious threat has now become a routinely used tool of extraordinary brutality. This is what happens when the police get draconian powers. They get used to them.

One day I am going to get busted for blogging at work but until that day the Lighthouse lamp is on.

* - there are probably more drugs in Soho than there are in the entire country, in all fairness

Great article on blogging? Tish-tosh! It's got three pages worth on Samizdata, who probably paid for the privilege, and only one paragraph on the infinitely superior Chicken Yog.

And you and I don't even get a mensh, Moai, old chap.
