Metacritique of a Capitalist Critique of Postcommunist Feminine Aesthetics (or A Link with a Great Picture of Maria Sharapova) (JM)
So for my money there is really no more interesting and insightful blogger on the internets than Matthew Yglesias of the Atlantic. Just as a quick hit: Anne Applebaum, of Slate, has contended that the reason we see so many more hot Russian women these days is due the opening of the Russian market and capitalism. In other words, free market=more hot women. I was going write about how totally batshit crazy this theory is, but Matt Yglesias did such a good job it would be a total waste, so just read his post.
