Friday Links Round Up
1. There are currently three Robin Hood films in production by major studios. (The more, the merrier, I say--it increases the probability that at least one will be good.) Correction: Make that six films and one TV series currently in development.
2. East Asian realignments in the wake of China's aggressive South China Sea policy.
3. Discrimination against Asian students in higher ed admissions.
4. The future of government (we can hope): Estonia's digital citizenship.
5. Bruce Bartlett on the GOP's Fox News bubble.
6. The FIFA scandal largely broke due to 15 years of work by intrepid investigative journalist Andrew Jennings.
7. More on Russia's army of internet trolls. (More dangerous than you think.)
8. Beware of the Gish Gallop, and of its close rhetorical cousin, argumentum ad tl;dr.
