— Of course “a carefully constructed book” is valuable, does anyone deny this?

— Anyone interested in cities should read Douglas Rae’s City: Urbanism and Its End about New Haven.

— Non-eurozone countries leery of Greece bailout idea.

— Shouldn’t it have been former Senator Barack Obama’s job to bring Senate experience to the administration?

— More details emerge on Andrew Sullivan’s history of Jew-hating.
