We have been playing around with the idea of doing a semi-regular link aggregation feature for the site—highlighting articles that are either relevant to themes we regularly cover, or interesting, or just plain amusing to us, but that also don’t require much extra commentary. Here’s our first attempt as we wind down for Christmas with our families:

1. Coming soon: clinical trials on the fountain of youth.

2. “Run, she is trying to kill you.”

3. Pope Francis the Radical?

4. What could possibly go wrong…

5. Pakistan’s persecuted Christians.

    On the Economist piece on Indian mothers-in-law: you know, the culture described in the article sounds suspicously like one of those indigenous non-Western organic cultures that the relentless imperialism of abstract faceless soulless Western global free-market capitalism is busy destroying. I am not being entirely sarcastic. I tend to agree with writers who lament the destruction of other cultures by the march of the Way of the West over the face of the Earth (and I say this as a proud Westerner), yet whenever I read the particulars of such an actual culture, it often does not seem as lamentable as it did in the abstract. Even the people living the culture don’t seem all that enthralled by it.

    I think it would be an improvement if each link had a short abstract of the linked page.
