A provocative paper by Stanley Hauerwas, “Sacrificing the Sacrifices of War.”

Prof. Johan Fourie at Stellenbosch: “South African xenophobia: We are all immigrants.”

Martin Brodeur of New Jersey Devils retires. The first year I paid attention to hockey was 1993-94, Brodeur’s rookie year. He won the Calder Trophy, and the Devils came within one goal of the Stanley Cup Finals. The next year, Marty led NJ to our first of three Stanley Cups. This season is the first in my memory in which he was not in the Devils’ net. He is, without question, the greatest of all time, and will be sorely missed. Whence will his successor come? Who knows…

Tom Petty’s copyright settlement: Why Sam Smith didn’t really plagiarize TP. What does plagiarism of music mean? If all music is derivative in some sense, how is “originality” defined?

“I see why ‘double genocide’ is a term Lithuanians want. But it appals me.” A very thoughtful and provocative essay on cultural memory and memorials.

Michael Munger: The Sharing Economy. Amazon should be worried about Uber.
