The story should have been on how desparate that the Huckster has become. Only one candidate has made the flag an issue but that is the headline.

This was better and fairer than I would have expected from the New York Times.

This is an important story and needs to be heard. It is the junior officers and rising NCOs who are the future of the Army (and all military services). As to what will solve the problem, I'm not sure it is money alone. I disagree that officers coming out of OCS is a bad thing. Mustangs, as they are called in the Navy, rarely forget from whence they came and keep the interests of their men (and women) foremost.

There is protecting your kids and then there is intervening when they need a good kick in the ass. Huckabee, it seems, did the latter. I would have liked to have heard more about the son trying to carry a loaded gun on board the plane.

In addition to the flubs, it would have been nice if the authors paid as much attention to all the plants, ringers, and other "undecided" voters as they did to how many years it had been since Red Sox had won the World Series. CNN blew it and they need their nose rubbed in it. Horticulture journalism indeed.

The third iceberg that lies ahead for the Democrats will be a decision by the SCOTUS in the Heller v. DC gun case. If they take the case, a decision will come out in the fall just in time to be discussed by the candidates. It will be hard to ignore for the Democrats and red-meat for the Republicans regardless of the decision.

Mr. Cloud did some selective editing of LtGen Sanchez's speech - like the first half where the good General berated the press for questionable ethics, irresponsible reporting, and political agendas with regard to Iraq. Read the transcript of his speech and then say this was a fair story. http://www.militaryreporters.org/sanchez_101207.html

Is this good journalism? Of course not. It is advocacy. What I find amusing is Sirota's indignant tone given how the left-wing environmental nutcases would do the same damn thing as he is accusing the MT Republicans of doing - letting the houses burn. The "environmentalist" rationale would be different saying that those houses were harming the environment by their presence and that they were owned by rich non-PC people anyway.

This is actually a much fairer proposal in that it allocates electoral votes by who wins a congressional district than some of the other proposals out there. For example, in my home state of North Carolina, there is a serious proposal by DEMOCRATS to give the state's electoral votes to whomever wins the nationwide popular vote regardless of how the state voted. If you want to talk about disenfranchising voters, let's talk about the NC Democrats proposal.

This is an excellent article on France's rather imperialistic relationship with its former colonies in Africa.

Michael Yon sets the tone from the very beginning. His stories remind me a bit of Michael Herr's Dispatches in that it captures the grit and reality of infantry warfare.
