This shot was sent in by frequent TWN commenter, POA. It’s a railroad trestle as seen from beneath. I think it’s quite stunning. Back from Pittsburgh yesterday. In DC. Off to Europe on Thursday.
Last night, I had a round with the smartest anchor on air, Rachel Maddow, about Joe Lieberman and what his future in the Senate could look like. I have heard Joe Lieberman state on many occasions that “our children’s education is a national security issue.
This is interesting. The Project for a New American Century — the lilly pad for the neoconservative movement — is back online. For nearly a year, perhaps more, the site has been down. No one seems to have paid the bill to the internet site host. But it’s back up.
I just received some surprising news — like, really surprising. The deal is not done — but at the moment — Hillary Rodham Clinton is in the lead to be Secretary of State. I thought she wouldn’t take it if offered.

I’m not satisfied with the roster of economic personalities and thinkers we see Barack Obama mixing with.
