Hubris in Retreat?

Good Morning. Some of you may not be getting these emails in as timely a way as Feedburner promises us (they're scheduled to ship out to your mailbox around 5:30 a.m. Eastern time). It's a problem with the so-called "Atom" feed. I have no idea what the technicalities mean, but we're working on it and hope to have it resolved soon. Meanwhile, a couple of new items:
  • Morality Is Not On Israel's Side: Leave it to the Israeli press to have the more honest dialogue on the Lebanon war: This piece, almost unthinkable on the Op-Ed pages of the New York Times or the Washington Post, and a likely invitation to asinine boycots and accusations of anti-Semitism were it to be written by an Arab and run in any one of a thousand dailies across the United States, appeared on July 25 in Haaretz, one of Israel's two principal dailies.
