Me elsewhere: Monday's Daily Read.
‘He apparently had no fears’: The steep, unexpected downfall of Dennis Hastert (I can/can't believe how little everyone seems to care about this, honestly.)
"Syria is gradually becoming another more secretive, hybrid war of the sort that fits into Mr. Putin’s comfort zone, they said." It's good to know your strengths, I guess.
