Duck Prosciutto Pizza. Easy and delicious.
Duck Prosciutto Pizza. As I mentioned yesterday, with all this duck prosciutto what's an amateur chef to do? Given it was a week night and when I bought ingredients I didn't know if the prosci...

The Short List is out.

The UN finds torture in Afghanistan. The NTC tightens the noose in Libya. Al Qaeda confirms al Awlaki's death. Greece deals with the austere. Russia visits China, cautions Syria.

The recovery that isn't in the U.S. and the stories the American Petroleum Institute tells. Occupy Wall Street persists, seeks permits. Eric Cantor, the face of obstructionism.

Protests in Afghanistan. Qaddafi is deposed, but supported. Yemen and the U.S. try to figure out the next goal. The BBC slashes its budget. Palestine moves one step closer to UN membership.

Steve Jobs has died. Occupy Wall Street persists, gets more organized. Congress disagrees on taxes, but agrees on tariffs. Sarah Palin won't, and Nevada moves its caucus to mid-January. The victims of Whitey Bulger take the FBI to court.

The Short List is out.

A truck bomb goes off in Mogadishu. The Syrian government rounds up thousands. What passes for good news in Greece. Karzai in India. And three Americans win the Nobel in physics.

Occupy Wall Street persists, sharpens focus. While CEO compensation continues its upward spiral. The underwear bomber trial begins and Roger Simon is okay with the fact that the President can kill you. Hank Williams Jr no longer ready for some football. Romney risks the latino vote. And House Tea Party freshmen may not be tea party fresh enough.

The Short List is out, and we don't believe in filler baby.

Al-Aulaqi has reported been killed. Pakistanis believe the U.S. is set to attack over Pakistan's support of the Huqqani network, even though the goverment says the claim is baseless. Afghan ethnic groups jockey for position. Libya tries to confirm a capture. Chinese firms are under investigation by the DOJ.

Gov. Christie considers a run, of the presidential variety not the over land variety. Glenn Beck will indoctrinate your kids if you subscribe. Bank of America shows it's thanks to tax payers after receiving TARP funds.

Violence persists in Yemen, but the story is absent from the major front pages. Greek public transit workers go on strike. Oman helped broker the release of the two American hikers. China is objecting over a new US-Taiwan arms deal, though maybe not strenuously. King Abdullah makes a bid for evolution instead of revolution. France fines violators of the burqa ban.

The state of Georgia executes Troy Davis. Healthcare reform provides insurance to nearly one million young adults. Mitt Romney hammers home the electability argument. House Dems show discipline.

Turkey responds to a PKK attack with an incursion into Iraq. Secretary Clinton meets with Libya's transitional government. Forty Palestinians are freed into exile. Violence continues in Yemen. The U.S. is hedging on a military deal with Bahrain. Greece goes on a two day general strike.

We round up the GOP debate, which was more contentious then any previous. Wild animals escape from a preserve in Ohio. Obama to announce a public-private partnership to aid veterans. Nuclear power is divisive.

Three women share the Nobel Peace Prize. Commanders in Afghanistan focus on the attainable, not the ambitious. Slovakia is gumming up the works in the EU. Pakistan consider a treason charge. Palestine feels the bite of missing U.S. funds. An Iranian student go home to find he's been charged with treason.

President Obama defends his jobs bill, admits poor negotiating tactics. Unemployment is steady at 9.1%, while Rogoff suggests we need a little inflation. Occupy Wall Street now occupies Freedom Plaza in DC. The head of Alabama's ag department thinks inmates can replace the migrant workers that fled the state after a new immigration law kicked in.

Russia and China give the rare double veto to a resolution condemning Syria. Saudi Arabia says a foreign power is fomenting unrest, but fails to specify which foreign power they're talking about. Greece is on strike. The Yemeni government kills some of its citizens.

Occupy Wall Street gains momentum and allies. Obama is on the attack. Bernanke scolds Congress. Hank Williams Jr. kind of apologizes for dropping an H-bomb.

Global markets slump, while China aims for a soft landing. In Libya, people flee Sirte while they can. Bahrain sends protesters to jail for a long time. Syrian has a formal opposition council. And where does the U.S. and Pakistan go from here?

Supercommittee looking rather impotent. An uncertain budget process leads to an uncertain economy. The professional Tea Party rakes in cash, chokes off local chapters. The Supremes are back. And why are we talking about the name of Perry's hunting camp and not his plans to invade Mexico?

The Short List is out and it's never trash day at DCExile.

Saleh returns to Yemen just in time for the civil war. Pakistan says America will lose an ally if we keep saying mean things about them. Syria is reporting five troops killed by "terrorists," though some might call them protesters. Abbas seeks to come out behind the shadow and make the case for Palestinian statehood. NTC forces continue their drive to secure the whole of Libya.

The markets tumble. The federal government lurches toward another shut down. The GOP have a debate, offend all kinds of people.

The U.S. gives Pakistan an ultimatum. Drone sites are popping up within range of the Horn and Yemen. The two U.S. hikers may be released today. Tens of thousands in the West Bank demonstrate in support of Palestinian statehood, while President Obama has to walk a very fine line.

Some think the president's recent remarks are too far left. Sara Palin annoys. Google invests in red. The farm lobby withers on the vine.
