A La Carte (7/30)

The Fate of Afghan Women - This article from TIME (this is a shortened version of the print magazine’s cover story) looks at what may be in store for women in Afghanistan after the US and other nations depart.

The Spill: Not As Bad As We Feared? - And while we’re on the subject of TIME, it also has a rather interesting article suggesting that perhaps the BP oil spill is not quite as bad as everyone feared. You know you’ll have to read an article from TIME when it contains the words “[Rush] Limbaugh has a point.”

Jeremy Lin - The Washington Post takes a look at Jeremy Lin, a Harvard grad, the first Asian-American in the league since 1947 and a committed Christian. You can read more about his faith here.
