Saturday Morning (Journalism) Quarterback

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

Congratulations America! the "terror watch list" topped one million Americans this week!

in economics this week, oil brings America closer to OPEC debtor dependence, taxpayers are being stuck with Wall Street's mistakes, and the national debt is $455,000 per household. This is the death of Reaganomics. And George W. Bush is OK with that (everything but the Reagonomics part).

And speaking of our flagship Republican economy, a charity founded to help people in remote areas get basic medical care has set up shop in the good ol' US of A.

The Nation reports on Disaster Capitalism and our stretched resources.

Finally, Salon says good bye Budweiser.
