  2. E.J. Dionne with some of his usual thoughtful commentary on the ongoing disintegration of the Republic Party;
  3. Hamas captures the Gaza Strip; yet another disaster for Bush's Foreign "Policy";
  4. The Defense and Veterans Affairs Departments are failing mentally wounded veterans. Pretty sad that this just isn't shocking anymore;
  5. And just before the tiger finally devoured him, Trent Lott realized he had made a fatal mistake in ever thinking he could ride it;
  6. Privitizing justice, shockingly enough, seems just not to work;
