The New Yorker on Orszag

RL calls, so if readers want to dig into the article, that would be great. What I noticed:

The subtle (or not so subtle) coarsening of the New Yorker as an institution continues. Read more about The New Yorker on Orszag

Nobody could have predicted....

Once again, McClatchy is covering the story; I can't imagine why WaPo and the Times are go-to news sources for anybody but insiders, these days. It's a shame, but there it is.

Is Obama wrong on Iraq? Baghdad violence worst in year

Homeless in Charlotte

McClatchy, as usual, covers what nobody else does. Here's the first part of a three-part series on being homeless in the Charlotte Observer:

Sunday Book Review

Tomorrow is Sunday, and after taking the last session off it's time to find out what we have all been reading.

If I had to choose a topic, I'd go with Eastern European sports thriller, but that may be a bit too focused. I'll just leave it open to whatever. I keep hinting at some trashy mind candy like Valley of the Dolls but haven't gotten any takers. I know there are some of you out there that read "those kinds of books".

Maybe -- it depends on the denomination and the location of the church, apparently. In Mexico, according to the Dallas Morning News' report from that beleaguered nation, church attendance and the sacraments of Mass are being altered -- the Mayor of Mexico City has threatened to close down public transportation there.
