Round-up on various stories

My piece on what the next Congress might look like.

A piece by a Muslim man about the recent Time Magazine cover (Featuring an Afghan woman with her nose cut off and suggesting that American occupation will solve that problem) and how Muslim women have generally fared under Western occupations (Hint: Not well).

Christine Romer is leaving the Obama Administration due to her not having any influence on the President's economic policies. She'll be missed as she called for good things to happen.
