- Nice summary of what we’ve learned from the Wikileaks cables.
- John McWhorter talks frankly about race and ending the drug war. It’s a refreshingly frank and honest piece of writing. And somewhat surprising for the middling The New Republic.
- Woman wins $250,000 settlement after police investigators falsely implicate her in four 1989 murders. The case against her fell apart after a state police boasted about planting her fingerprints during a job interview with the FBI.
- Will Wilkinson responds to Arnold Kling’s charge that libertarians don’t take national defense seriously.
- Scott Greenfield names the best criminal law posts of 2010. Here’s the winner. This post from the L.A. Times on the DOJ’s hostility to pardons is very good, too.
