On Wednesday, the International Criminal Court named six Kenyan officials as responsible for the violence, including Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta, sacked education minister William Ruto -- a declared candidate for the 2012 presidential election -- and former police chief Mohammed Hussein Ali. Kenya is bracing itself for a violent reaction to the announcement.

Driven to the brink by the New York Times' coverage of D.C. restaurants, Tim Carman writes:
Could you please stop rubbing our noses in our inferiority? We understand by now. You're better than we are. Your fashion is better than ours, your art is better and, of course, your restaurants are better. Washingtonians will forever cower in the long shadow cast by Gotham, nervously picking our nails and hoping you will like us one day.
