Pressure Peers (link roundup)

Doesn't make me want to buy The Economist, but I like the message of "Pressure Peers." Via.

And a few more links:

1. Jared Diamond tries to answer the question, "Where did the Japanese come from?"

2. You can download the mp3 of White Gold and Strawberry Summers singing "Almost As Beautiful As Me" here.

3. The NY Times reports that Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy spoke at a high school, but demanded that he get to edit any article about the appearance in the school newspaper. UPDATE: Kennedy says it was a misunderstanding and blames an underling.
