Open Thread

I've been posting articles to what I've been reading. What else are people reading (or seeing or hearing)? Post links in this open thread.

At some times I check on the old Commondreams site to see if there's anything worth posting here for comments. But to be honest, I rarely see anything these days. When I went recently, I saw almost no debate of Obama's cabinet or policies. I saw a couple of stories, posted on Sat, about not shopping on Fri. And I saw a 'news release' from some 'anti-war group' I'd never heard of supporting the Bush-Obama plans to keep troops in Iraq until 2011. In general, the article selection over there seems so non-discript that I'm not seeing much to link to.

But, if you see something on that site that you want linked to over here, just post a comment up here and I'll go set up a link to it.

Did anyone catch this link given by a blogger on Common Dreams a few weeks ago?

If I could afford books I would be reading "Freedom for the thought we hate: A Biography of the First Amendment". James Bamford "The Shadow Factory: The Ultra-Secret NSA from 9/11 to the Eavesdropping on America" Jeremy Scahill "Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army [Revised and Updated]", Chalmers Johnson Trilogy Blowback books and Sheldon S. Wolin "Democracy Incorporated".
