Linkage for 22, March 2011

(Per emails received, folks – needless to say, my linking to something is because I find it interesting, thought provoking, or providing a little examined facet on something. This doesn’t mean I endorse or support it by necessity, I may link to or quote from, wantonly and without apology, anything I disagree with because it at least provoked thought or prodded an assumption I haven’t examined. People who only read those who agree with them are essentially mental slaves. )
