Some links for your Tuesday:
- I think that Coach Cal comes off fabulously well here. The article is particularly good on the time horizons problem; coaches/owners/administrators will always have a longer time horizon than players, in any sport, at any level.
- I don’t plan to read Max Boot’s latest (despite the fact that the publisher bought a very nice ad from us; thanks, Max!), and Gian Gentile’s review only reinforces my thinking. To be sure, I think that Gentile is consistently overbroad with his COIN critique, but that doesn’t particularly bother me when Max Boot is the target.
- I found this remarkably useful; keeping up with Petyr Baelish over the course of 5000ish pages is rather a trial without a study aid.
- The F-35 got a lotta troubles. Here’s a solid-enough explanation of what advocates like about the plane, and why numbers matter.
- Hey, at least the Chinese are wasting money on missile defense, too!
- What behavior do we owe Duke fans who visit our home arenas? Sadly, it’s a question not covered, for obvious reasons, by any human rights theory.
- Chuck Hagel’s turn at DoD may see some significant decisions about U.S. nuclear weapons policy. See also Drezner on how and why the anti-Hagel brigade is spending its money.
- Whoa. Just… whoa.
