1. The first piece is an editorial from the NY Times. I did not watch the Republicants presidential candidates debate last week, but I did see a piece where the moderator, Matt Lauer, was asking Rick Perry about his record as being the governor with the highest recorded record of death penalty executions - 234.....and the audience burst out in a sustained applause before the questions was finished. Killing seems to be an attractive asset for this audience. It gives one cause to wonder.....yeah, really wonder:
2. Paul Krugman, of the NY Times, on the problems with different origins related to the European Union financial crisis:
3. Bob Woodward of the Washington Post. Nice piece on the continuing rebuttals to Cheney's memoir of a book (Dr. Death and the goodness of Evil):
4. LA Times Op-Ed. A bit of human interest change of pace. Sandy Koufax, record keeping, and data analysis. No politics involved:
