Cherry Pickin'

Coming off the long weekend, we've got a cornucopia of useful information. The New York Times on the Governator(s), BBC on justice served cold, Slate on why two Reagans are better than one and much more. So sit back, click through and read up. And don't worry. The Buzz totally skimmed the reading.


The New York Times: A possible way out of the quagmire?! Get to da choppa!

The Los Angeles Times: But will he go toe-to-toe with BHO?

The Chicago Tribune: They don't teach "look both ways" just because it sounds clever.

The Boston Globe: I suppose that's one way to end homelessness, Duval.

Fox News: Connecticut just doesn't seem eccentric enough to allow pet chimpanzees.

BBC: Sometimes, there isn't a statute of limitation on justice.

Al Jazeera: Only a first step, but still a huge step.

The Daily Beast: I went from prep school to a futon, but that's not quite as compelling.

The Huffington Post: Bet she wishes she was just a community organizer right about now.

Slate: I'll take whichever one was the best for the country (and didn't ruin the 80s for large swaths of American citizens.)
