Not about books ...

... but worth our attention because it is so worrisome - and especially because probably no one will be inclined to do anything about it: How China has created a new slave empire in Africa. (Hat tip, Paul Davis.)

I am increasingly inclined to withdraw from the world, read the classics, and prepare for my passing - but some things just demand your attention. This must be something upon which the brothers Hitchens agree.
