Over now

Led Zeppelin III is an under-rated album. The gems are “Immigrant Song,” “Out on the Tiles,” and “Friends.” The surprisingly violent imagery of “Hats Off to (Roy) Harper” revealed to me the deep foundation of misogyny on which American blues tradition is built. The only clunker is the over-wrought “Since I’ve Been Loving You.” The album cover packaging was an added bonus.

The installation of Narendra Modi in India as Prime Minister is disturbing and potentially tragic. For the region and for women.

Michael Gove could have chosen to appropriate writers from the former colonies by referring to their works as literature of the British diaspora.

Marine Le Pen is sponsoring a neo-Fascist International.
