Bits and Pieces - November 3, 2009

Bob Herbert differs with Tom Friedman: Obama has a strategy and tells us about it, but the press doesn't cover it.

And now we're beginning to engage diplomatically with Burma.

Some good news from the Depr/recession.

Claude Lévi-Strauss dies at 100.

Why medical care costs so much. I'm not sure this has been shown to be true, but it's persuasive.

This one also seems plausible. Will we find, in congressional hearings a few years on, that the food companies were aware of and using this fact, just as we found that the cigarette companies were making cigarettes more addictive?

Who's funding the conservative movement?
