Paris, Beirut, and Priorities.

I have seen a number of posts recently lamenting the uneven coverage that has been given to Beirut and Paris this weekend. I feel compelled to discuss this and to offer up my thoughts. Mostly because I see a lot of people attributing this uneven coverage to some very unpleasant reasons that are not entirely justified. This is much more complex than "the media doesn't care about brown people".

So I'm going to break the usual pattern of this blog to post something political. I want this to be someplace more permanent than a Facebook status.
