It’s Sunday morning. What’s catching your eye in the news or on the blogs this morning? 

This caught mine: are blogs making the discussion over economics and solutions to the financial crisis more polarized and harder to solve? Or are they bringing out the points and the questions that ought to already be part of the public discourse on the subject and any legislation thereon?

It’s a fascinating bit of chicken and egg, isn’t it?

But I don’t think it can be discussed without also including the driving force of political radio in some of this. Thoughts?

This morning’s picture is from Julie’s Magic Light Show — isn’t he a gorgeous red-breasted merganser?   Love this shot because the light on the water makes me want to go outside for some lovely weather.  Except, alas, we aren’t having any today.
