Weekend Links

That’s it from me, folks. Thanks for reading and commenting. Ed and Elon Green will be your weekend bloggers. Also, don’t forget now that the Olympics are finished, Up With Chris will be back on the air, 8 AM on MSNBC. Here are some random snippets from around the web:

1. Fareed Zakaria gets suspended from Time for a month for plagiarizing from the New Yorker. Who in their right mind does that?

2. Creepy.

3. Touché, Errol Morris.

4. Newt University?

5. The risks of the “daring campaign.”

6. Brad DeLong says Erskine Bowles would make a lousy Treasury Secretary. Also, “beat sweetener” is about right.

Peace.
