Taking a break from all-Alvin Greene new, all the time, here’s what else is going on:
- Sanford signs $300M in across-the-board vetoes (P&C) — Contains some more details than in yesterday’s story on the subject.
- General McChrystal: Kandahar operation will take longer (WashPost) — More time needed to get local leaders on board before the big push against the Taliban. Oh, and in case you’re wondering why we should keep fighting these people, check this out: “Officials: Taliban executes boy, 7, for spying.”
- U.K. Speaks Out in Defense of BP (WSJ) — HMG getting fed up with folks on our side of the pond beating up on their lads.
- BP accused of ‘lack of integrity’ by US House speaker (BBC) — Meanwhile, this is what they’re hearing over in Britain.
- Clyburn wants feds to probe SC Senate candidate (AP) — OK, so there’s some Greene news on my front…
- Politicians, analysts question new open primary system (LATimes) — Meanwhile, I’ve been neglecting California’s Proposition 14, which sounds absolutely wonderful to me. We need to start pushing to try it right here in South Carolina. (Thanks to Phillip for getting me to pay attention.)
