    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.
