Three encouraging bits of news
"Lockheed Martin's New Killer Laser Will Change Life For Troops On The Ground"

Truth, in several parts

"An Opinion on Gun Control". Note to the sensitive: the author is noticeably lacking in understanding and compassion for people who want to murder innocents. He calls them "scumbags" or "scum" four times. Well, nobody's perfect. But otherwise the piece is important and devastating to gun-control advocates. 

For more in this vein, see John Lott, Jr. discuss the matter with Soledad O'Brien

"The Tired Race Card". This so needed to be said. 

"Silence of the Feminists: So many oppressed Muslim women, so few words about them". Ditto.

"Are we living in the Hunger Games?"

"Carbon Tax Policy: No Simple Answers". (Link via Mike Munger.)

"What Everyone Knows About Austerity". 

"Bootleggers and Baptists: (or, 'Why Politics Makes Strange Bedfellows')". In my experience, the B&B idea is second only to A Conflict of Visions in explaining how American politics works.
