Paul Krugman's latest column in the Times is definitely one worth reading if the democratic race has distracted you from the real reasons we need change in this country. It's easy to get wrapped up in the election coverage, but that makes it more important than ever to keep an eye on the White House, since they love to get away with stuff when the country's back is turned. Hey, look at the Charles Pickering appointment. Like it's not bad enough that Bush celebrates the life of Dr. Martin Luther King by appointing a controversial, reportedly segregationist judge to the federal bench, he does it while congress is on recess, and while all eyes are on the Iowa Caucuses. I'll be keeping my eyes on them this week and every week until we get them the hell outta there.
