Saturday Morning (Journalism) Quarterback

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

One day late this week - there was a minor accident involving red wine, poor sidewalk conditions, and my ankle, knee and back.

This week we star with the end of the Reagan era.

In These Times talks about the coming fight over food.

The American Prospect suggests how the left can avoid a war over liberal education reform.

In economics this week, is the GOP cooking the books until after election day?. There's a record drop in private sector jobs, forclosures up 53% and billionaires are gouging are grandparents.

Finally this week, a blog post over cycling that spurred an angry debate over cycling in cities. See if you can find my comment! One poster suggested bicycles should be illegal, as roads were made only for cars. I wanted to remind him that the League of American Wheelmen, the U.S.'s first bicycle advocacy group, was largely responsible for us having paved roads at all.
