DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Usama bin Laden passes, the speech the President should have given, in total:

“Nothing personal, just business.   Bravo Zulu gentlemen.”

Bin Laden wasn’t the problem.  His passing will not the solution.

Cowboy presidency, from Adam Goldman, Associated Press [3]:

WASHINGTON – Officials say CIA interrogators in secret overseas prisons developed the first strands of information that ultimately led to the killing of Osama bin Laden.


The news is sure to reignite debate over whether the now-closed interrogation and detention program was successful. Former president George W. Bush authorized the CIA to use the harshest interrogation tactics in U.S. history. President Barack Obama closed the prison system.

One of my pet peeves is when people criticize “journalists” when what they actually mean to criticize are “people on TV.” It is the latter category of TV news that so often inspires contempt for “the media” — an attitude I generally share, except for the fact that I’ve been a professional journalist for 25 years, having begun my newspaper career at a 6,000-circulation Georgia weekly in 1986
