The Peter Principle is the principle that “in a hierarchy every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence”.

It was formulated by Dr. Laurence J. Peter and Raymond Hull in their 1969 book The Peter Principle, a humorous treatise which also introduced the “salutary science of hierarchiology”, “inadvertently founded” by Peter. It holds that in a hierarchy, members are promoted so long as they work competently. Sooner or later they are promoted to a position at which they are no longer competent (their “level of incompetence”), and there they remain, being unable to earn further promotions. This principle can be modelled and has theoretical validity. Peter’s Corollary states that “in time, every post tends to be occupied by an employee who is incompetent to carry out his duties” and adds that “work is accomplished by those employees who have not yet reached their level of incompetence”.

THAROOR: India: No Longer Handcuffed to History

The High Court of India's most populous state, Uttar Pradesh, has finally decided a 61-year-old suit over possession of a disputed site in the temple city of Ayodhya, where, in 1992, a mob of Hindu extremists tore down the 500-tear-old Babri Masjid mosque. The court's decision is an affirmation of Indian pluralism and of the rule of law.

France: First Case of Burqa Rage?

By Suzanne Lehn

Allain Jules, blogging in centpapiers from Quebec, cannot wait for the impending decision of a French court in the case of a 63 years old former teacher who ripped off the burqa of a young female tourist from the United Arab Emirates in a Parisian shop back in February. She told the police that: “she had been working in Arab countries before and she was just fed up with all the fuss about the veil”. Allain Jules sarcastically adds  that the business of luxury goods might suffer from the incident [Fr].

PIRACY: Jesus Did It

Link to larger size, creator and origin date unknown. Via Waxy, who adds:

Shortly after, the BFA (Bread & Fish Association) filed lawsuits against all 5,000 food-sharers.
To which I'd add:
