What I read this week:
Human trophies are as old as war itself.

Presidents and their beards.
Remembering why we are fighting in Afghanistan.
Oil dispute may yield Africa’s newest war.
Depressing predictions about the global robot population (via Kevin Drum).
Orangutan engineers build safe and comfortable treetop beds.
Political cartoons don’t deserve a Pulitzer.
Probably the best comic I’ve seen on a professor’s door at UCSD.
