A bit late, but here are our top stories:
- Obama, Medvedev Say They’ve ‘Reset’ Relations (NPR) — Apparently, going by the picture, they decided this over cheeseburgers.
- Jobless Bill Dies Amid Deficit Fears (WSJ) — True, I have a job now, but plenty of people out there still don’t, so this is important. You know something I noticed while I was unemployed? These sorts of developments didn’t get as much coverage as they deserved.
- Financial overhaul negotiations focus on bank trading, derivatives (WashPost) — This, too, is important — but less interesting to me, I gotta tell ya.
- US can ‘no longer drive global growth’ (BBC) — Geithner delivers some home truths to the Brits. I guess he means somebody besides us needs to start buying some junk.
- Will GOP moderates defect to Sheheen? (thestate) — I thought this piece was fairly interesting. It makes perfect sense that business leaders would prefer Sheheen. But will this pattern hold?
- Is 3-D TV For Real? (WSJ) — Neither Roger Ebert nor I will run out and buy one, but maybe you will.
