Most radio stations in Somalia have stopped playing music, on the orders of Islamist Hizbul-Islam militia, who say that songs are un-Islamic.
Some people like to claim that Somalia is an example of libertarian ideals at work in the real world. They have no government, supposedly, but this sounds a helluva lot like government to me.Read more »

In The People's Republic of China, it's no secret that the Party controls just about everything. But as Beijing suffers through its second major snowstorm this season, residents are growing weary of their leadership's control-freak tendencies.
