U.S. finds it can no longer afford to be backward

Progressive priorities save dollars because they make sense. Time For Marijuana Legalization? - CBS News
Apparently, it was nothing personal after all. Apparently, it was strictly business all along. After generations of defending capital punishment and marijuana possession laws on moral, ethical and religious grounds, after years of declaring that the death penalty acted as a deterrent against violent crime and that pot smokers were more dangerous to society than, say, alcohol consumers, all of a sudden thanks to our economic crisis more and more mainstream powerbrokers are considering dramatic changes to our criminal justice system. The New York Times today has a late-arriving piece by Ian Urbina which posits that lawmakers in several states are considering abandoning the death penalty because it’s just too expensive and cuts into other law enforcement priorities. State officials are beginning to acknowledge that they can more productively spend their budget funds on cracking unsolved cases or ensuring better police protection than on keeping pot smokers in prison or fighting for decades with capital defendants.

Sasha Obama Keeps Seeing Creepy Bush Twins While Riding Tricycle Through White House

Sasha Obama Keeps Seeing Creepy Bush Twins While Riding Tricycle Through White House | The Onion - America's Finest News Source

Sasha, who was playing in the East Wing of the executive mansion so as not to disturb her busy father, reported seeing the former first twins while riding her Big Wheel tricycle down the Cross Hall corridor. The frightening apparitions, the 7-year-old said, emerged out of thin air and were dressed in identical outfits consisting of spaghetti strap tank tops and denim skirts.

. . .

According to White House security documents, Sasha told Secret Service agents that the ghostly twins spoke to her in unison and repeatedly beckoned her by chanting the phrases "come play with us," "come play with us, forever," and "Daddy's making fajitas."

White House officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, also detailed a disturbing vision experienced by Sasha, who at several points during her encounter suddenly saw the twin girls lying motionless in a pool of spilled strawberry margaritas.

The media will again be allowed to photograph the coffins of dead soldiers

Think Progress -- Pentagon to allow media photos of war dead.

Defense and congressional officials said today that “[n]ews organizations will be allowed to photograph the homecomings of America’s war dead under a new Pentagon policy” but “only if the families of the fallen agree.” President George H.W. Bush instituted the ban on photographing flag-draped caskets at Dover Air Force Base and the Republican-led Senate backed the policy in 2004. Last year however, Defense Secretary Robert Gates ordered a review of the ban with Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) and Frank Lautenburg (D-NJ) urging the White House to reverse it shortly after President Obama took office.

Hearst May Sell or Close San Francisco Chronicle

Hearst May Sell or Close San Francisco Chronicle - DealBook Blog - NYTimes.com
Hearst said on Tuesday that it may sell or close The San Francisco Chronicle if it cannot wring enough savings from the money-losing newspaper.... Hearst said in its statement that The Chronicle, which it bought in 2000, lost $50 million last year and has lost money every year since 2001. Among the changes the company said it wants to see is “a significant reduction” in its union and nonunion employees. “Survival is the outcome we all want to achieve,” Frank A. Bennack Jr., Hearst’s chief executive officer, and Steven R. Swartz, the president of its newspaper division, said in a statement. “But without the specific changes we are seeking across the entire Chronicle organization, we will have no choice but to quickly seek a buyer for the Chronicle or, should a buyer not be found, to shut the newspaper down.”
