Seven trashes collected by the senses.

– Looks like the supposedly anti-imperialist Iranin regime’s economic policy is praised by, wait for it, the imperialists of the IMF.

– The grapevine has it that India and Bangladesh will sign a Teesta water sharing treaty in September.  Now’s a good time to see how the 1996 Ganges Treaty has been playing out.

– Do you know how the poor really lives?

Tareque Masud will be sorely missed.

– Ed Glaeser’s recipe for stopping riots is kinda like what Lutuzzaman Babar initiated back in the day.

– We are still making a lot of mistakes, and I don’t know if we are learning.  Is his guitar still gently weeping?

    I don’t know about “gently”, but isn’t the nature of guitars to weep?
