If its the last thing we ever do


* HRW: Women's rights declining in Afghanistan:

An extensive world report by HRW found that the Afghan government under President Hamid Karzai had made a series of decisions in 2013 that undermined human rights, particularly those of women and girls.

* Shocking Law: Wife beating, honour killing to be legalised in Afghanistan.

* Patrick Cockburn: After 12 years, £390bn, and countless dead, we leave poverty, fraud - and the Taliban in Afghanistan:

It was at about this time that I decided that the main problem in Afghanistan was not the strength of the Taliban but the weakness of the government.

* Political prop or not, Duckworth emotion all too real.

* Missing in action: Films affected by actors' deaths.

* Great story: The truth about Charlie Finley and his KC Beatles concert. (Via Dan Brekke.)

* The Beatles, Everywhere.

* Bird.

* We gotta get out of this place.
