A round up of recent reporting and commentary by a few centrist, moderate, and independent bloggers.
Nancy Hanks highlights yet another state-level fight for open primaries.
David Schraub suggests Israel may be the only country in the Middle East where this type of meeting could be held without disastrous results.
At OxBlog, David Adesnik is troubled by the hypocrisy of a solicitation letter using simplistic, inflammatory language under the guise of “intellectual firepower.”
At his blog, TMV assistant editor Michael vdG notes a story that has more than just a pinch of irony for a nation that stole the land from its native inhabitants.
Jeb at Foreign Policy Watch adds to the scrutiny of (and related questions about) George Soros’ recent investment in Halliburton. (Questions are healthy, but information is power: Businessweek and other publications have previously reported on the revised emphasis of activists buying stock of targeted companies to fight for reform from within. Could that be Soros’ intent in this situation?)
At Black Shards, marc tackles the debate over the rights of adoptive and biological parents.
