Today on the Dish we caught late-breaking coverage of the still-simmering student protests - here, here, here, and here. Enduring America and the Newest Deal summarized yesterday's drama, and Juan Cole raised the specter of Kurdish involvement. In other foreign coverage, Ignatius worried Andrew over a potential split between the US and Israel, Max Boot fueled his fears about indefinite occupation in Iraq, and al Qaeda explosions further stoked sectarianism there. We also listened to a suicide bomber.
In assorted commentary, Fallows analyzed climate-gate coverage, Weigel showed the success of Obama's Afghan speech, Hanna Rosin explained why divorce has dropped, Ta-Nehisi mulled reparations, David Link pondered bigotry, David Sessions condemned the capitalization of homophobia, and Harry Reid actually injected the history of slavery into the healthcare debate.
An apostate liberal blogger triggered reader debate here and here, a pair of Palin postings elicited a history lesson from readers here, her treatment of Trig peeved a parent with a special-needs kid, a reader extolled James Hansen's approach to carbon, another reader fisked him, and a Brookings scholar fisked cap and trade. Manbearpig wrote a poem.
