Holding pattern

Still in a holding pattern until I get time to write some serious and interesting entries. Until that time, I recommend these two:

  • Feminism and Islam on Pickled Politics. Article by a feminist Muslim that among other things touches on the distinction between what the Quran says and contemporary interpretations discussed in my last entry.
  • Sortition: the solution on Stumbling and Mumbling. Sortition means election by lottery (think juries), and Chris proposes it as a way to elect members to the House of Lords. This is an idea I’ve often advocated, but it doesn’t get much serious discussion. Chris gives a pretty clear and straightforward argument in favour of it.
