Sunday supplement

Writers under fire: In the NYT, Rachel Donadio lists those who condemned Salman Rushdie, while John Irving defends G√ľnter Grass.

Elsewhere, Christopher Hitchens meets Rage Boy, Lyndon Hood writes an open letter to a closed Parliament, Ben Myers considers Wikiresearch, Paul Lukas tells the story of Scotch tape and David France shows you how to tell if your best friend is gay.

Meanwhile, The Strategist has a poem by Edmund Blunden, while Frank Stupid has collected even more reading matter.
