Air America files for bankruptcy

Financial, not moral. Think Progress reported it a month ago, but nothing came of it. But they clearly were on to something. Air America said it only recently decided to file after negotiations with a key financial backer fell through, but…

The North Korea blame game

I'm not that interested in the "who's to blame" question over North Korea. It's a fair topic, but as with many such questions it's very difficult to compare the actions of different presidents, who faced differing circumstances at differing…
