Dear patient readers,
My sleep cycle has gotten even more out of whack than usual, and we had a lot of good material on we Innertubes, as Lambert calls them, so I hope you’ll forgive the lack of an original post.
Baltimore Sun (furzy mouse)
FiveThirtyEight (resilc). :-(
New York Times. Furzy mouse is getting her wish.
s Huffington Post (EM)
Guardian (furzy mouse)
Washington Post. Resilc: “Is the wapo now a licensed lobbyist for Amazon?”
BBC. Watch the vides in this article
Alliance for Natural Health (furzy mouse)
New York Times
New York Times
Guardian. The quasi live blog treatment seems like overkill.
Radio Free Asia
Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, Telegraph. Huh? Podemos distanced itself from Syriza when the fight was on, moved to the center, and it’s still taken a big hit in the polls. The notion that there are real, effective left-wing radicals in Europe remains very much in doubt.
Financial Times. Wow. The EC may not be all that good at it, but it sees itself as the defender of smaller countries in the Eurozone.
New York Times
Guardian. Wow, she could be from central casting. And having done Cyprus, she will be a kneecap breaker.
New York Times. As we warned….these exporters rely on imports.
Kathimerini. This Google translate version is unusually readable (original for those who read Greek). This part is consistent with what we’ve argued:
In relation to debt, in fact, the information of “K” say that Europeans now accept the need for restructuring, although not discussed details on how to do this – or indeed on the financing needs of the program or the budgetary targets who will define the size of the adjustment in the years ahead.
War Nerd, Pando. A must read.

Big Brother is Watching You Watch
Bloomberg. Keep in mind Obama will veto even assuming they do their rider passed.
Huffington Post (EM)
Wall Street Journal. You can see a damning table of Bill Clinton’s top sources of speech income on , outside the paywall.
MSNBC. Furzy mouse: “Must read what Cohen says to Daily Beast reporter….serious threats.”
Black Injustice Tipping Point
New York Times. JCC: “The Cincinnati Chief of Police is right, it doesn’t look good at all.” I had to watch it twice. The prosecutor, in a separate set of clips, sounds convincingly saddened and appalled.
Charles Blow, New York Times
Slate. Resilc: “Why not Cheney and W?”
Financial Times. As reader Li has said, “Dr. Strangelove was a documentary.”
TalkMarkets. Um, this is news?
Wall Street Journal
Matt Levine, Bloomberg. This is so convoluted it makes my head hurt. But tax does that to most people.
Michael Shedlock (furzy mouse). No, I would not take fashion tips from Mish, but he is right about the stupidity of high end bags. If you want to make a status statement, watches and jewelry hold their value much better (and never buy retail) . But be warned they trade down hard in bad markets too.
Antidote du jour. This is Jia Jia, , although this is a photo when she was younger:
And a bonus video antidote. The Chincoteague swim reminded me of it:
