Like many Americans, I look to the Bible for insight and comfort. Each day I try to glean wisdom from the well-worn pages. While I may never know who actually wrote the words, I still have trust because, well, it is the Bible after all.
Naturally, I’m referring to The Economist. The biting humor of the Brits continues to provide loads of entertainment. Here’s The Economist on Petraeus’s testiomony and Iraq:
The Democrats also have another, deeper problem. They won both houses of Congress last year by promising to end the war in Iraq. Despite strong public support, they have not even come close to doing so. Mr bin Laden, who has apparently been reading Noam Chomsky in his cave, says this is because America is ruled by large corporations. Others prefer a less sinister explanation.
I love it. bin Laden reading Chomsky in his cave. Only one publication would have the balls to say something like that in the middle of a serious article about Iraq.
On a related note, one of the negative consequences of having access to the second largest university library on the west coast is that I find myself reading all sorts of periodicals and newspapers from around the world. With basically every publication available free for reading, I can’t help myself. Control yourself, Ben, control yourself.
