      All,

       Best of the Moment

      The Secret Life Of J Edgar Hoover

      Anthony Summers | Observer | 1 January 2012

      Explosive read on former FBI director. Imagine a cross-dressing paranoid narcissist with connections to organised crime. "Hoover was like a sewer that collected dirt. I now believe he was the worst public servant in our history" Comments

      The Limits Of Secularism

      Jonathan Sacks | Standpoint | 27 December 2011

      Interesting essay in defence of theism, by Chief Rabbi. Addressing why religion survives, indeed thrives, in our modern world. "Science takes things apart to see how they work; religion puts things together to see what they mean" Comments

      The Accidental Universe: Science's Crisis Of Faith

      Alan Lightman | Harper's | 21 December 2011

      "If the multiverse idea is correct, then the historic mission of physics to explain all the properties of our universe in terms of fundamental principles is futile, a beautiful philosophical dream that simply isn’t true" Comments

      Eulogies To Kim Jong Il

      Anonymous | KCNA | 31 December 2011

      Read and weep. "Let us make the whistle of the field train sounded by the great Comrade Kim Jong Il on the forefront of the revolution reverberate throughout the country as the drum of victory in the great upsurge!" Comments

      The Law Of Online Sharing

      Paul Boutin | Tech Review | 30 December 2011

      "Facebook's impending problem is that even if the company enables future pacemakers to share our every heartbeat, it cannot automate caring—the most important part of the feedback loop that has driven the social Web's ascent" Comments

      Gift Of Tongues

      Anonymous | Economist | 28 December 2011

      If you can speak more than 11 languages well, you are a hyperpolyglot. Which doesn't mean you are a genius, though. It means you enjoy repetitive, detailed learning. You are probably an introvert. And possibly a charlatan Comments
