Some important information that may be of interest.

1.The magnificent Charles Murray reviews a very important book on racial differences. It is entitled “Book Review: ‘A Troublesome Inheritance’ by Nicholas Wade; A scientific revolution is under way—upending one of our reigning orthodoxies.” and appeared in the Wall Street Journal of May 2, 2014 (I thank Bill Barnett for bringing this to my attention): http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702303380004579521482247869874

2.Here is a very good article on Russia, Crimea. If this were written by one of the regular LRC writers, it would be unremarkable. But, it appeared in the New York Times, of all places. It is “In Crimea, Russia Moved to Throw Off the Cloak of Defeat” and was written by David M. Herszenhorn, and appeared on March 24, 2014; http://www.nytimes.com/2014/03/25/world/europe/ukraine.html?_r=0
