Rastafarians and Quakers — How young religions adapt.

Bulldozers Meet Historic Chinese Neighborhood — Ah, hutongs. (Thanks to Dad.)

Shirley Sherrod and the shame of conservative media — Worth the read, no matter where you fall on the political spectrum.

"Context is Everything" — More about Breitbart and the Sherrod video. Also, Scrivener's Error with a great rant on the same topic.
