This is the temporary home of The Daily Face Palm, while we're building a new website.

The Daily Face Palm is a daily news brief on one story we think you should know about. We pick out the stories, and frame them in the appropriate context. Our focus is primarily on US foreign policy, so a lot of the news will naturally be depressing. If you're an American, your reaction to most of these posts may be some form of, "Wait, we did what?" That's usually how we feel.

We won't patronize you and pretend to be objective observers. We're biased and okay with it. Specifically, we're in favor of nonintervention, civil liberties, the rule of law, and Austrian economics. The stories we cover and the context we provide will reflect these views, so we thought you should know our tendencies upfront.

Who is this for?
The Daily Face Palm is designed for anyone who wants to learn more about what's going on in the world. There's a lot of information out there, and it's tough to know what's worth reading and what's a waste of your time. We also know you probably don't have time to read everything. Fortunately, we already spend (waste?) a lot of our time reading the news, and we're happy to pass along the highlight. Our goal is to give you a meaningful understanding of one story each day. We won't cover everything, but we'll try to cover one thing well.

Isn't Face Palm just one word?
Probably. Most dictionaries seem to use simply facepalm in their definitions. But frankly, The Daily Facepalm just didn't do it for us typographically. So we went rogue.
