Here’s a link to Nigel Kennedy playing a mean Vivaldi – the first movement to the Winter Concerto. Powerful stuff.



Anne Applebaum on Benazir Bhutto

Here’s an interesting take on the West’s perception of Bhutto compared to some of her own countrymen.

How big, for example, is the gap between the Western perception of Hamid Karzai, the well-spoken, well-meaning, liberalizing president of Afghanistan, and the perception of his Afghan countrymen? So far, attention has focused on how Bhutto’s assassination might affect the course of events in Pakistan. My wish, for 2008, is that it not be a harbinger of what is to come elsewhere.

If this kind of link isn’t fit for a site called Allthemorereason, I don’t know what possibly could. It’s an excerpt from a documentary on James Randi, who dedicated his life to discrediting psychics and the like. I particularly love the way the git Uri Geller is completely stuffed on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.

This is a hilarious article on Hitchens by Hitchens going to spas and whatnot. There’s one photo of him which is positively shameless!

Interesting interview with Hirsi Ali on the French 20 heures this evening. She was accompanied by the French spokeswoman for human rights, whose name escapes me right now.
