Links: 2008-12-04

I am off on holiday through Monday, so posting will be light or non-existent unless Marshall steps into the breech. In the meantime, I wanted to leave you all with a few links to interesting articles (I especially like the one on condom sales).

Other stories are in the news feed.

All the best.
