A Couple of Ink Caps From The Curate's Paddock

And with one bound, FaceRight awoke. I've always appreciated his news and views on what's happening in California, and the impact of the "new" Latino immigration on existing minority communities.

I say "new" because all the oldest stuff in CA is Spanish. The San Luis Obispo mission is 1772, when Bostonians were still subjects of King George.

Pub Philosopher contrasts the low levels of individual violence in India with the much higher levels of communal violence. Interesting as ever.

South Africa seems to be getting a bit Zimbabwe-ish at the edges. Is this an unfortunate event or part of a wider trend ?
