Each day, I’m failing to leave myself enough time on this, but I’m determined to do it, even if it’s sketchy:
- Qaddafi Forces Take Back Strategic Town From Rebels (NYT) — Folks, this is not going well. Anybody up for doing something about it? Anyone?
- West Takes Tougher Stance on Libya (NYT) At least, the French do: “The French government took the strongest steps of any Western nation to support the opposition…” Anybody feel the world flip over just then, sudden-like?
- Nato ‘kills Hamid Karzai cousin’ (BBC) — Not good. Karzai was already pretty ticked about civilian casualties, which anyone would be. Now this.
- Wisconsin Assembly Approves Union Bill (WSJ) — For those of you following that thing, which is some other state’s business and not ours. Fine by me, to the extent that I have an opinion.
- Hearings offer drama, little substance (WashPost) — A House hearing on the radicalization of American Muslims offered a few facts and a surplus of political theater Thursday, as legislators from both parties argued about Islam, terrorism – and the wisdom of the hearing itself.” Kind of what you expected, right?
- Lawmaker proposes report card for Haley (thestate.com) — Hey, a single lawmaker merely proposing such a thing isn’t big news, and the report is sketchy, but it brought a smile, so I include it for the mix. (Something else that made me smile — the report calls the governor “Nikki Haley, R-Lexington,” a Freudian slip that shows my friends back in the MSM haven’t totally gotten over thinking of her as a back-bench sophomore House member, which she so recently was.)
