I'm not sure if I've already blogged this, but if you haven't read it you have to: Rebecca L on Buddhists, Myanmar, Incitement to Murder, and Responsibility for one's own actions.

Also check out Homo Economicus, including this indictment of Mo Ansar's marriage advice and this rebuttal of Assed Baig on Malala. Which leads neatly on to:
