Something For The Weekend

If you missed these stories from RFE/RL this week and are looking for something to read/watch over the weekend, try these:

Jon Stewart talks to RFE/RL about political satire in a free society, part of our wider package on satire.

Ron Synovitz gives the lowdown on white phosphorous and John O'Sullivan parses the British expenses scandal.

Have a great weekend.
