Saturday Morning (Journalism) Quarterback

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

Slate, the folks who brought us The Poetry of Donald Rumsfeld, now bring us The Poetry of Sarah Palin.

The New Republic discusses the relationship of Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell.

The Washington Post asks: is America too insular for great writing?

In economics, Wall Street is collapsing after "free market" conservatism imploded. Huh. On an unrelated note, this is the 75th anniversary of the New Deal. The Financial Times asks do we need a global monetary authority? The American Prospect says we need to learn from 1929.

Finally this week, working people shouldn't be the ones bailing out Wall Street.
