Meanwhile, you can sift through Paul Krugman's ramblings about how Obama inherited such a god-awful mess that his too conservative policies just couldn't fix things by now. Hunh?
If that doesn't get you going, you can take a look at Robert M. Goldberg's take on Dr. "Death Panel" Berwick and his plans for Obamacare.
Thomas Joscelyn reports on the WikiLeaks casualty numbers; I don't care what you say - I think releasing classified documents like this is treason and should be treated as such.
We're a week out from the big mid-terms and all signs are pointing to a huge Republican sweep. All I've got to say to the Republicans is...don't blow it. When you get in there, make it count. Like everywhere else, we've got some contentious local races, too; the Shreveport mayor's race is something I'm going to be looking at this week in this space. Our local Gannet paper endorsed Melancon over Sen. Vitter for Senate - no shocker there. Sorry - can't do that.
Locally, I expect we might hear more today about the tragic loss of Sgt. Tim Prunty yesterday. Steve and I were in a funk all day yesterday about the incident and I know the whole city is. Was a quiet, sad day. Here's the link to The Times latest update on things, as well as my day long post yesterday.
Behave yourselves today.
