I wish I got to take a month-long August recess:
— The case against congress’ summer vacation.
— Better corporate governance won’t stop your banking crisis.
— National security blogger extraordinaire Spencer Ackerman was a consultant on In The Loop and I’m really looking forward to seeing it.
— The next Supreme Leader?
Song of the day, comes from Jay-Z, who’s not just a pretext for talking about international relations theory, with a new track (featuring Rihanna and Kanye West) “Run This Town”.
