Not exactly news but……short quiz that shows how your views correlate with each of the six presidential candidates on a number of issues. Results are also broken down by state.

More Simpson / Bowles is on the agenda.
Campaign to Fix the Debt
We have joined together for this campaign to call on policymakers from both sides of the aisle to determine the best way to gradually and intelligently bring our debt under control. The solutions won’t be easy – they will require some combination of cuts to low-priority spending, controls on the growth of entitlements to make them sustainably solvent, and revenue-raising tax reform. We simply cannot afford all the promises we’ve made. But if we do this right, we can make reforms in a way that protects the most vulnerable, prioritizes important investments in areas like infrastructure and education, and enhances economic growth.
Steering Committee listed on the Campaign to Fix the Debt website consit of:
Erskine Bowles, Senator Alan Simpson, Senator Judd Gregg, Governor Ed Rendell, Governor Phil Bredesen, David Cote, Senator Sam Nunn, Michael Peterson, Steven Rattner, Ambassador Robert Zoellick, Congressman Jim McCrery

Oops! Air Force Drones Can Now (Accidentally) Spy on You
As long as the Air Force pinky-swears it didn’t mean to, its drone fleet can keep tabs on the movements of Americans, far from the battlefields of Afghanistan, Pakistan or Yemen. And it can hold data on them for 90 days — studying it to see if the people it accidentally spied upon are actually legitimate targets of domestic surveillance.
