This month, a British government report admitted that one of the major rationales for invading Iraq—the claim that Saddam could deploy WMDs in 45 minutes—probably came from a cab driver. Had the public originally been told about this sketchy sourcing, there may have been a more, ahem, forceful mass opposition to pre-emptive...

Applicants to top colleges and graduate schools often take test-preparation courses from private companies. Recently, those hoping to gain admission to prestigious private high schools and grade schools have also gone the route of corporate course prep.

Tonight @ the Marcus Center - 7:30 PM

Still wondering about that New York Times McCain piece leaving so much of the Vicki Iseman allegations up in the air? Want to know why it was innuendo heavy, and concrete-fact light? So did Time: "They did this because the The New Republic was going to run a story that looked back at the infighting there," [McCain Senior aide Mark] Salter said, "the Judy Miller-type power struggles -- they dec...
