* "One of the youngest detainees held at the US detention centre in Guantanamo Bay will sue the United States."
* Great read: David Von Drehle with a different look at Ted Kennedy's legacy. Also, Karen Tumulty on Kennedy's success as the ultimate pragmatist. And remembering his fight for civil rights.
* Canada forces Facebook to improve its privacy policy.
* Swing low: "Scientists have discovered a planet that shouldn't exist."
* Reflection: EVE Online hit by financial crisis. (Courtesy warmaster.)
* Interesting new projects from Warren Ellis.
