Storied Magazine Makes Historic Sales Pitch

The New Yorker is selling its complete archive, “every article, poem, short story, and cartoon (and every advertisement) that has appeared in the magazine since 1925,” on an external hard drive for $300.  It’s a novel move for a media company, many of which have been wary of releasing digital versions of content to the public, for fear of piracy.

Harris Campaign Scrambles to Explain Gaff

The Katherine Harris campaign tried on Saturday to clarify the candidate’s latest ride on the crazy train, when she said that separation of church and state is “a lie we have been told” and that “God is the one who chooses our rulers.”  It’s an interesting idea coming from Harris, who worked so hard in the 2000 election to disenfranchise voters on Bush’s behalf.  (h/t: Americablog)

Hezbollah Leader Regrets War

Hassan Nasrallah, the head of Hezbollah, said in a Lebanese TV interview that he would not have ordered the kidnapping of Israeli soldiers had he known the scale of violence that was to follow.  If he had it to do all over again, Nasrallah said, with a 1% chance that Israel would respond as it did, he would say: “No, definitely not, for humanitarian, moral, social, security, military and political reasons.”

Actions Speak Louder Than Empty Promises

A year after the levees broke, Bush has again acknowledged his government’s failure to protect and rescue the citizens of New Orleans, promising “the federal government will learn the lessons of Katrina.”  Although the president pledged $110 billion for reconstruction, one of Louisiana’s senators has criticized the slow progress of rebuilding: “Countless neighborhoods appear as if the hurricanes were just yesterday, and they serve as harsh reminders of how our nation was so unprepared.”

Macaca-thon!

Can’t get enough backstory on Va. Sen. George Allen’s racist remark? Neither can the Washington Post, which posted this 1,300-word profile on the object of Allen’s remark, 20-year-old U. Va student S.R. Sidarth.
