What Kind Of Day Has It Been

  • Sargent Shriver passed away yesterday

  • The New York Times considers the etiquette of inviting a former president who is married to a current Secretary of State to a State dinner. Seriously.

  • The Supreme Court denied certiorari in the al-Adahi case, essentially affirming the D.C. Circuit's revision of evidentiary as well as review standards. Wittes provides a summary but misses that important point.

  • Insurgents struck Iraqi security forces for the second time in two days. These attacks follow a spate of U.S. soldiers killed there recently, along with other indicators of an insurgency not yet extinguished.

  • The U.N. is sending additional peacekeepers to Cote d'Ivoire, which sounds a bit ominous to me.
