What I read this week:

Femicide in Guatemala (via Longreads).

The two-state solution on its deathbed.

California high-speed rail circles the drain (via Hot Air). It’s increasingly hard to imagine any useful infrastructure coming out of this project at a reasonable cost.

Why Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala wants to run the World Bank.

Slow waltz on Syria.

Obama’s call to culture war.

I’m sure everyone’s seen this by now, but Texts from Hilary is very funny.

The new age of Israeli missile defense.

African agriculture: Dirt poor.

The hell of the American prison system.
