    "Because Syria is no longer Syria. It is a nuthouse. There is the Italian guy who was unemployed and joined al-Qaeda, and whose mom is hunting for him around Aleppo to give him a good beating; there is the Japanese tourist who is on the frontlines, because he says he needs two weeks of “thrills”; the Swedish law-school graduate who came to collect evidence of war crimes; the American musicians with bin Laden-style beards who insist this helps them blend in, even though they are blonde and six-feet, five-inches tall. (They brought malaria drugs, even if there’s no malaria here, and want to deliver them while playing violin.)"
    - Francesca Borri’s jarring account on the hells of freelancing in Syria — and our journalism crisis. (via azmatzahra)

    "We spent those evenings talking, our gestures making up for a paucity of shared words. But I knew, in some unnameable way, that they were good people. And from that, I could tell how two people with no shared language could fall easily and deeply in love; how the way a man expresses longing, or a woman expresses possibility, could be like discovery; how an entire person could be, to another, a long, dark country."

    This is actually quite ingenious, I think. Well done.

If you look closer, the Guardian has a “Republicans click here” on their page that takes you to a version of the front page without the royal wedding.

    bookavore:

    With sincere apologies if this has been done before, but I think this is the only way I can read another one of these. Maybe I might be cranky today!

    Above question is lede — one drink

    reblogged now because it’s happening all over again …
