By Taylor Marvin

Franz Marc, The Fate of the Animals.

Franz Marc, "The Fate of the Animals".

The best links of the week:

North Korea’s super-sized hotel is set to open — 23 years behind schedule.

Raise the crime rate. “The Justice Department now seems to be saying that prison rape accounted for the majority of all rapes committed in the US in 2008, likely making the United States the first country in the history of the world to count more rapes for men than for women.”

Is Acts of Valor — an upcoming film that stars active duty Navy SEALs — propaganda? James Gerrond thinks so. Jeff Emanuel offers a well-reasoned defense of the film. Thoughts? (both links via Zack Beauchamp).

US News, the root of all evil.

Truth, lies, and Afghanistan.

Sex for sale in Beirut.

Philip Ewing has an entertaining take on the end of the F-35B’s probation.

Unleaded gasoline and teen pregnancy.

Quality, Quantity and Mr. Miyagi.

Never use the word ‘sheeple’.
