Who Was Joe Stack?

As a follow-up to our discussion on the show Friday where I posed the question: "Who was Joe Stack: terrorist, right-wing Teabagger, left wing Communist, 'True American Hero' praised on Facebook, or anxious and disillusioned American whose fear, anger and hatred was exploited by the Republi-cons? (Read Chuck Baldwin, I Wish Joe Stack Had Not Killed Himself!)"

Read The New York Times, The First Tea-Party Terrorist?

Culture or Politics, What Makes a Country Great?

Test case -- Iraq, where it is yet to be determined whether "new politics triumph over its cultural divides, or [if] cultural divides sink its fledgling democracy." Read The New York Times, Iraq’s Known Unknowns, Still Unknown.
