Here’s this week’s open thread and our regular round-up of some of the articles and blogs we’ve noticed over the last week or so, but not had the time or capacity to post about.

If you have a link or comment that doesn’t fit anywhere else and would like to share it, feel free to drop it in the comments here.

As always, linking does not imply endorsement.

The story on the appaling desecration of a muslim woman’s body from the Independent is from 2003. I think it is important to give some context to the posting of historical incidents of race hate – and perhaps the open thread wasn’t the best place on the blog. For example did the woman’s family attain justice after the incident? was a prosecution brought? have similar incidents taken place recently making this issue current?

Sorry about that. People were tweeting it and I forgot to check the date when it was added to the round-up list.
