A week's Reactions that deserve a second look:


Friday

By Capt. Fogg: "The Commies are (still) coming!" -- Fogg concludes, "I'm nearly convinced that the biggest problem facing our new administration is not terrorism, depression or climate change, but the enemy within; the enemy who disseminate viral e-mails, throw tantrums on AM radio, giggle and sneer on Fox News: the people who make stupid jokes and the people who pass them on and on and on."

By Michael J.W. Stickings: "Barack and Hillary: Team of Allies?" -- Michael covers all the angles in his piece about the possibility of Hillary Clinton becoming Secretary of State (includes link to earlier post).
