Cranky Friday

These should probably be Tweets but anyway.

1. Do we really want to be celebrating (New York Times) young teens celebrating Daft Punk/Pharrell/Nile Rodgers Get Lucky given what those lyrics are actually about? Or  do we discount that as being only in New York?

2. What's the point of the International Criminal Court*(New York Times)? Bashar al-Assad must be laughing his moustache off at the threat that he might end up there.

3. Washington Post: "Liberal hawks are silent on Syria." Have any liberals, hawks or otherwise, had anything to say on Syria? You wouldn't know it from the liberal blogs.

*In fairness to the ICC, the botched verdicts in this case are from the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia.
