Saturday Morning (Journalism) Quarterback

The top five stories worth reading from this past week in worth-reading stories:

We start this week, unfortunately, with clear evidence of the U.S. committing war crimes. This was reinforced by our own generals. This begs the question: why are corporate journalists so afraid of questioning authority?

ABC News reports that a healthy life may literally change your genes.

The Nation delves into the anatomy of an oil price surge. the New York Times reports that oil giants return to Iraq (Editor's note: I wonder who's troops will have to stay there to protect them?)

Now, I'm not saying "class war" but The Washington Post reports CEO pay rose last year in the wake of an economic downturn, housing crises, rising food prises, record unemployment, the weakened dollar and decreasing workers wages....ahem. Our Future says we need a new strategy in the global economy and Alternet reports on how shaky economic times are even shakier for women.

Finally this week, in Dinosaur! news, a treasure trove in Utah.
