The Pentagon's Runaway Budget; The end of newspapers

The Pentagon's Runaway Budget By Carl Conetta

"Taking the new budget into account, the Defense Department has been granted about $7.2 trillion since 1998, when the post-Cold War decline in defense spending ended."

Does the word "obscene" come to mind?

The End of Newspapers By Marie Benilde

"The transfer of advertising from newspapers to the net is often blamed, but the public has also become disillusioned with the content supplied by a journalistic elite that has lost credibility: newspapers are seen as politically biased, following the crowd, and uninterested in the needs of their readers."

Marie has this right.

Bring on the long overdue "new breed of editors"!
