An irregular round-up of interesting reads. Most of these made me go "hmmmmm," none of them imply concurrence:
QUOTE OF THE DAY
“To whom do you award the right to decide which speech is harmful or who is the harmful speaker? To whom would you delegate the task of deciding for you what you could read?” Bonus quote: “I learned that very often the most intolerant and narrow-minded people are the ones who congratulate themselves on their tolerance and open-mindedness.” Both from the late Christopher Hitchens.
