The Death of Ernie Pyle WWII's most beloved war correspondent died with the soldiers he wrote about

Peter Berkowitz: Judith Miller Recants; Where's the Media?
"I reexamined the entire trial and concluded that Fitzgerald’s theory of the case was fundamentally flawed and that his unscrupulous conduct was not limited to withholding exculpatory evidence from Miller and the defense; I believe it extended to other prosecution witnesses as well." [rdbrewer]

Daily News: Clowns clash with protesters at Ramos Bros. Circus in Southern California
"Circus workers allegedly tried to stop the activists, who had been picketing outside the property where the family-run show was performing, from forcing their way inside the tent." Hoping for better video. [rdbrewer]

Arthur L. Herman: The Runaway Prosecutor Who Almost Lost Iraq: The truth about Dick Cheney, 'Scooter' Libby, and Valerie Plame
I missed this last week. "[Patrick] Fitzgerald didn’t go after Armitage because he had someone else in his prosecutorial cross hairs. That was Vice President Dick Cheney.... Bringing down Cheney for the Plame leak, Fitzgerald figured, would make his career, especially among liberals and go a long way toward justifying a two-year-long witch hunt.... ¶ When Libby refused to lie to save his own skin, Fitzgerald indicted him. ¶ And now, thanks to [Judith] Miller’s book, we know the final, most devastating truth about Fitzgerald’s tainted prosecution." How is Patrick Fitzgerald not in jail or at least disbarred? [rdbrewer]

Video: A Conversation with Milo Yiannopoulos
Sargon of Akkad talks to Milo in this just-completed live stream. Very interesting. Watch/listen to the whole thing. [rdbrewer]

T. Becket Adams: Conservatives' social media diet more balanced than liberals'
"A review of data in a new study by StatSocial indicates conservatives on Twitter are more likely to follow liberal partisans and reporters at left-of-center news organizations than their counterparts on the Left are to follow right-leaning figures." Progs are even doing auto-block lists. Very illiberal, close-minded people. Via @JohnEkdahl. [rdbrewer]

Radley Balko: State seizes 11-year-old, arrests his mother after he defends medical marijuana during a school presentation

That's going to be fun. The Wrap is already posting revelations. [rdbrewer]

Daily Mail: Could giant 'glitter' clouds help us find alien worlds? Nasa reveals it may use sparkling dust in place of mirrors in telescopes
"In the proposed system, the small cloud of glitter-like grains would be trapped and manipulated with multiple laser beams." That's not going to work, you guys. Just sayin'. Via @ComradeArthur. [rdbrewer]

Robert Tracinski: What It Would Take to Prove Global Warming
"All Bailey’s piece amounts to is: here is a long list of factual claims that seem to support the global warming scare; how high do I have to pile up these claims before you are convinced?" [rdbrewer]

Pundit Press: College Apologizes for Serving Mexican Food During Sci-Fi Event
Gas, right? "In a letter sent out to students, the college apologized for having 'a Mexican food buffet,' while also featuring spaceships and aliens. The college received complaints saying the combination was racist because of the association between Mexicans and illegal immigrants." [rdbrewer]

Cal Thomas, Sun Journal: Hillary tactic reminiscent of Nixon
"People with long memories and a firm grasp of political history, will recall this is straight from the Richard Nixon playbook. 'The New Nixon' public relations campaign was an attempt by Nixon supporters to reinvent (that word again) a man whom many saw as cold, remote, dishonest and unknowable. You know, like Hillary Clinton." [rdbrewer]

Sean Davis: Hillary Clinton Calls Education A ‘Non-Family Enterprise,’ Praises Common Core [rdbrewer]
Scientists: "There is great danger of [fill in the blank]. Give us [x-amount of dollars], and we will monitor and help prepare. Otherwise [horrible things] will happen." [rdbrewer]

Jon Gabriel: Star Wars Superfan’s Review of the New Trailer
"I could review the trailer in detail, but you can watch it for yourself. However, we superfans are most interested in what the trailer didn’t show." [rdbrewer]

Peter Baker, NYT: Congress’s Role in Iran Nuclear Deal Shows Limits of Obama’s Power
"Mr. Obama’s abrupt decision to sign a compromise version of legislation on Iran that he had previously vowed to veto was a bruising retreat in his larger campaign to act without Congress’s getting in his way." [rdbrewer]

Thomas Edsall, NYT: Has Obamacare Turned Voters Against Sharing the Wealth?
"This shift in public opinion is a major victory for the Republican Party. It is part of a larger trend: a steady decline in support for redistributive government policies." [rdbrewer]

Liz Mair, The Daily Beast: You Deserve Hillary’s Bloodless, Condescending Campaign
"An increasingly shallow and risk-averse America gets the most shallow and risk-averse candidate imaginable." Via @ConArtCritic. BTW, you might wonder how she plans on running without interacting with the press. She will. She'll talk to hand-picked, friendly interviewers, just like she did during her Senate run. [rdbrewer]
