• Good morning, pups. Today we have Brooks, Nocera and Bruni. In “The Revolt of the Weak” Bobo gurgles that this summer, the bad guys have looked energetic while the good guys have looked tired, putting the norms of civilization under threat. Mr. Nocera has a question in “The Human Toll of Offshoring:” What should we be doing to make globalization work for us instead of against us? In “Obama’s Messy Words” Mr. Bruni says there’s inadequate urgency or reassurance in the president’s language, as Americans gaze with horror at events abroad.

    Here they are, and

    here’s Krugman’s blog.

    The coffee and tea are ready, and the biscuits are out of the oven. I feel like crap on a cracker today so I’m tucking myself back into bed. Have a great day.

    Good morning, pups. Today we have Blow and Krugman. In “Obama and the Warmongers” Mr. Blow points out that the president’s deliberative approach to the ISIS threat may be drowned out by the chants for blood. May be? Absolutely has been, is being, and will be. Prof. Krugman, in “The Medicare Miracle,” says after all the talk about how providing health care to the uninsured would be unaffordable and unsustainable, it turns out that it isn’t hard at all.

    Here they are. Prof. Krugman didn’t post to his blog yesterday.

    The coffee and tea are ready, and I’ve got your favorite omelet this morning. So. The Labor Day parade in New York City will be held on Saturday. It will be all of 20 blocks long. This tells us a great deal about America. Have a great day.

    Good morning, pups. Today we have Dowd, Cohen, Kristof and Bruni. Praise the FSM, The Pasty Little Putz and The Moustache of Wisdom are off today. MoDo is fizzing over a thespian again. (Which is certainly better than another venomous column about Obama/Clinton/marijuana/any random Democrat.) In “High Tea With Mr. Fancypants Sheen” she babbles that [...]

    Good morning, pups. Today we have Brooks and Krugman. Bobo has one of his burning questions in “The Mental Virtues:” How do you build character in front of your keyboard at work? Well, Bobo, you could start by not playing Gunga Din to the Mole People. Just a thought… Prof. Krugman also has a question in “The Fall of France:” Has President François Hollande doomed the European project as the disastrous consequences of austerity policies grow more obvious with each passing month?

    Here they are. Prof. Krugman didn’t post to his blog yesterday.

    The coffee and tea are ready, the cold drinks are in the fridge, and I’ve got waffles with warm maple syrup this morning. I’ve found the perfect anodyne while I’m waiting for my mouth to heal — a Simpsons marathon. All Simpsons all day for 12 days — every episode. I’m having a ball! Have a great day.

  • A 9 year old girl firing an Uzi… What could possibly go wrong?

  • Good morning, pups. Ms. Collins is off today, but we have Mr. Blow and Mr. Kristof. In “Bill O’Reilly and White Privilege” Mr. Blow reminds us that we can’t expect equality of outcome while at the same time acknowledging inequality of environments. Mr. Kristof has a question: “Is Everyone a Little Bit Racist?” He says recent events in Ferguson, Mo., have America talking about race, and that the conversation should include our unconscious attitudes that result in discriminatory policies and behavior.

    Here they are

    here’s Krugman’s blog.

    The coffee and tea are ready, the cold drinks are in the fridge, and I’ve got your favorite omelet this morning. Does anyone have plans for the Labor Day weekend? It actually feels like the beginning of fall outside this morning — it’s 66° with a reasonable humidity. There’s hope for the end of summer after all! Have a great day.

  • Good morning, pups. The Moustache of Wisdom is off today, so all we have is MoDo spewing venom. In “He Has a Dream” she hisses that President Obama, who once boldly and candidly addressed race, has outsourced the issue to the Rev. Al Sharpton. The mind boggles at what she would have said had Obama gone to Ferguson…

    Here’s the bitch. Prof. Krugman didn’t post to his blog yesterday.

    The coffee and tea are ready, the cold drinks are in the fridge, and I’ve got a variety of bagels with cream cheese. The cats actually let me sleep in this morning — the first decent night’s sleep I’ve had in a week due to the steroids. As a matter of fact, I think I’ll head back to bed with a book and a cat or two, and maybe I’ll drift off again. Have a great day.

  • What fun — I went over there to see how bad it was (yes, it’s worse) and found that I was able to comment. So I did. I doubt the author will agree with my suggestions…

    Good morning, pups. Bobo and Nocera are off today, so all we have are Cohen and Bruni. In “The Making of a Disaster” Mr. Cohen mansplains to us that a long list of American missteps paved the way to ISIS. Mr. Bruni is feeling “Lost in America,” and moans that we’ve gone from gumption to gloom, with political implications that are impossible to foretell.

    Here they are, and

    here’s Krugman’s blog.

    The coffee and tea are ready, the cold drinks are in the fridge, and I’ve got spiced pumpkin muffins this morning. The oral surgeon had prescribed a steroid dose pack for after my surgery and thank heaven that’s done this morning. Talk about insomnia… Fingers crossed I can get a decent night’s sleep tonight. Have a great day.

    Good morning, pups. Today we have Blow and Krugman. In “A Funeral in Ferguson” Mr. Blow reminds us that nobody should know what it feels like to bury a child as the whole world watches. But that is what Michael Brown’s parents must do. In “Wrong Way Nation” Prof. Krugman says the Sunbelt may be growing in population, but it’s not because of pro-business and pro-wealthy policies and higher wages.

    Here they are. Prof. Krugman didn’t post to his blog yesterday.

    The coffee and tea are ready, the cold drinks are in the fridge, and the biscuits are out of the oven. RIP David Attenborough. And it’s Monday again… Have a great day.

    Let’s not forget that President McCain will be accompanied by Karl Rove as part of the “roundtable.” I’m sure KKKarl will have extremely valuable insights into Ferguson…

    Good morning, pups. This morning we’ve got just The Pasty Little Putz, Dowd, Friedman and Bruni since Mr. Kristof is off today. The Putz is now an authority on ISIS. In “Our Thoroughly Modern Enemies” he putz-splains to us why radical Islam isn’t just a medieval throwback. This thing deserves “gemli” from Boston’s entire comment: [...]

    Good morning, pups. Today we have Nocera and Collins. In “Lessons Not Learned” Mr. Nocera says the S.&L. crisis could have helped us avoid the financial crisis. File this under “No shit, Sherlock.” He also managed to write the history without the name “McCain,” one of the Keating 5. Ms. Collins looks at “Gift Horses [...]

  • Good morning, pups. This morning we have Cohen and Krugman. It’s a good day today — Bobo is off. In “Patient No. 9413″ Mr. Cohen addresses bipolar illness and the mystery, shrouded in taboo, that preceded it. Prof. Krugman takes a look at “Hawks Crying Wolf” and has a question: What is it about crying “Inflation!” that makes it so appealing that people keep doing it despite having been wrong again and again?

    Here they are, and

    here’s Krugman’s blog.

    The coffee and tea are ready, the cold drinks are in the fridge, and I’ve got blueberry pancakes for y’all this morning. And Happy Birthday to Ruth! Time for me to feed the kittehs and take my morning meds. Have a great day.

  • Good morning, pups. Today we have just Mr. Blow and Ms. Collins, since Mr. Kristof is off. In “Constructing a Conversation on Race” Mr. Blow says true racial dialogue is not one-directional — from minorities to majorities — but multidirectional. In “Tell It to the Camera,” Ms. Collins says let’s hear it for the long-shot candidates this year. Like the high school math teacher running for the U.S. Senate in Montana.

    The coffee and tea are ready, the cold drinks are in the fridge, and I’ve got your favorite omelet this morning. My oral surgery went well yesterday, and now I’m left trying to figure out why anybody would voluntarily take “hillbilly heroin” (hydrocodone/Norco). It’s doing a dandy job of keeping my pain at bay, but it also makes me tired, woozy, itchy, and my eyes don’t focus well. And people take it on purpose? Wow… I’m off to take my first morning dose — I figured this might make more sense if I weren’t all swacked out on drugs. Have a great day.

    Good morning, pups. Today we’ve got Dowd and Friedman. We’ve got another screed from MoDo. In “Alone Again, Naturally” she snarls that the rock-star candidate who got elected on his electrifying promise has become a bored bird in a gilded cage. It’s more of her typical crap. The Moustache of Wisdom, in “Will the Ends, Will the Means,” says some important questions have gone unanswered in the Syria blame game.

    Here they are, and

    here’s Krugman’s blog.

    The coffee and tea are ready, the cold drinks are in the fridge, and I’ve got a variety of bagels with cream cheese. I’ve got to dash and get the morning things done before I head off to the dentist for some oral surgery. Have a great day, and FLOSS!

  • Just saying — even doing a search on Al Jazeera America for “ISIS beheading” yields nothing new, other than what they claim to want to do. Does anyone have any more proof from someone other than Politico? Links would be just lovely…

  • What can I say? They’re considered “main stream” and “important” media… Me? I’ll trust Al Jazeera over them any day and twice on Sunday.

  • At this point I’d be taking anything from Tiger Beat On The Potomac with a grain of salt. I’ve just checked the NYT, WaPoo, McClatchy, and Al Jazeera America and none of them have this story headlined, which I think it would be. Politico? Really?
