As far as I know, this is the first time in decades that The Economist has endorsed a sitting president.

Some fun with song names in these posters:

I'm pretty sure I recognize all of the Beatle songs.  I got a few of the Stones and Dylan songs, but don't know the other performers well enough to identify the references.

Excellent, long (13,000 word) debate between Bruce Schneier and Sam Harris on the efficacy of ethnic profiling at airports.

http://www.schneier.com/essay-397.html

Harris makes the commonsense case that resources are wasted when obvious non-terrorists like elderly people in wheelchairs are subjected to intensive screening. Schneier explains why intuition isn't a sound foundation for security procedures.

Personally, I think Bruce wins.
