- The economy's problem is lack of demand, not "regulatory uncertainty."
- Susan Schulten explains how the Union got demolished at the Battle of Ball's Bluff for want of a map.
- Frances Lee wrote a nice review of Greg Koger's book on the filibuster.
- Great Jon Stewart coverage of Pat Robertson's claims that GOP presidential candidates's rhetoric is sounding too extreme.
- Interesting screed about Michael Moore. Personally, I'm not a big Moore fan -- I think he's a bully and his films are a mess, but he does highlight some important events (Bush reading "My Pet Goat," the city of Flint dying, etc.) that the media tend to overlook.
- Jonathan Bernstein smacks around Newt Gingrich a bit. I'll give Gingrich a bit more credit than Bernstein does for recruiting quality candidates in 1994, but beyond that, our assessments align.
- Pretty fascinating 1994 exchange between Herman Cain and Bill Clinton about small businesses and health care reform. Both come off well.
- Some excellent back-to-school drinks. I'm a fan of the goldfish corpse reviver.
- The new Peter Gabriel is really good, but I don't get his fascination with Ane Brun, who basically ruins "Don't Give Up."
