I've got a post up at Demography Matters examining the dynamics underlying the growth of Russia's Muslim populations. In brief, these populations are going to grow sharply, more relatively than absolutely, but the degree of assimilation to date can be undone only by stupid provocations. Alas, there are plenty of those.

satyadasa's recent post on the mechanics of quickly navigating New York City's, positioning oneself on a train in such a position as to quickly speed to the next connecting vehicle when the train stops, reminded me of my experiences in Toronto. Only somewhat, alas; the TTC just isn't as complex a system as New York's famous subway.
