The Baron is away and the mice are lying around eating bon bons and drinking his last bottle of wine.
Since all the news is bad why not look at some interesting websites instead?
Natalie is posting on the Karadzic Trial.
Jerry Gordon has filed a report at the New English Reviewon the latest developments in the Rifqa Bary case. Abused children in foster care often end up being treated as the perpetrators. I had hoped this case would be different.
Heroyalwhyness sends a report from Islam in Europe: Netherlands: “In five years our women.. will all walk around with headscarves.”
Fausta sends along a report (humor ahead, watch for bumps):

She also has a post up today that I would’ve done had the rain not disrupted our connection — though not so well:
Fjordman sends some news of U.K. Labour’s ideas on social engineering. You know how well that works. Evidently they said, “let’s get us a whole bunch of immigrants, flood the country. We’ll rub the Right’s nose in diversity”. Another stupid idea from the Left.
Melanie Phillips is not pleased: “There could not have been a more grave abuse of the entire democratic process”.
I guess it’s too late to shoot these social engineers.
JD says that Chicago, the new Soviet Union, is paying a bounty to those who are willing to tell on their neighbors for cheating on their taxes. The tattle-tales get a percentage of the bounty. And probably a gift of cement overshoes thrown in for free.
From Diana West, some advice: “Stop Nation Building, Start Nation Saving”. She delineates the differences between Obama and his General.
A new blogger enters the infinity of the ‘sphere.
An old dog still hangs out in the cyberspace he so aptly named.
The Curmudgeon Emeritus ponders things temporal on Eternity Road.
