I've added Timothy Burke's Easily Distracted to my blogroll. Burke doesn't update that often, but there's a lot of intelligent writing there. Three recent posts are particularly noteworthy. This is an analysis of why nineteenth-century Britain's success at controlling its empire is probably not something the U.S. will be able to duplicate in Iraq. This is the best piece inspired by the Rigoberta Menchu affair I've read. And this post imagines what Lord of the Rings (the book) would have been like if it had been based on a massively multi-player online game. Even though I have no experience with MMOGs, I still thought it was very funny.
