    Hard News & More Is There!

    Molesworth and Featherston – The Insiders Good Oil

    - John Tamihere’s comments about his colleagues, and the subsequent anguish, have not affected the data yet but Labour is up in our rolling poll of polls. That could be the reason National is importing help. We are arguing there won’t be an early election date, though. The campaign for across-the-board five percent wage settlements rolls on and the OECD wants to see more mothers working. See... Molesworth & Featherston (Lobby Edition) – 7/4/05 [1]

    Steve Weissman Investigates America's Religious Right

    - When Lt. Gen. William G. "Jerry" Boykin boasted that his God was bigger than Islam's, many people demanded his scalp. But, as angry as his critics were, they dismissed what he said as little more than military machismo, political insensitivity, and bone-headed public relations. How could we possibly win Muslim hearts and minds when this highly decorated Crusader so callously belittled Allah? See... America's Religious Right - Saints or Subversives? [1]

    Charles Shaw On The Passing Of Saul Bellow

    - Day broke sharp and fast across Chicago this morning as the incendiary copper glow of a million sunbeams ignited an undulating sea of high-rise windows which coat the shore of Lake Michigan. Light spilled amply through one of these solitary windows into an old building in Hyde Park that Saul Bellow once called home. See... Saul Bellow: Eulogy From A Former Student... [1]
