What a week...

Some Friday links:

Paul Wolfowitz is in trouble at the World Bank for helping his girlfriend get a nice raise and transfer. There's also a huge profile of Wolfowitz in last week's New Yorker.

I am shocked, SHOCKED, that the White House might have lost e-mails regarding Attorney-gate.

Imus-gate...probably the topic of the week. There's been so much written already, but allow me to link to some of the better pieces:

Gwen Ifill does a take down of Imus in the form of an op-ed in the New York Times.

Jason Whitlock, sports columnist for the Kansas City Star, argues that the controversy over Imus is just another way for the black community to avoid facing its own issues.

Jonathan Weiler has two long (but fantastic) posts on the topic over at new sports blog, The Starting Five.

Kurt Vonnegut, counterculture author of the classic Slaughterhouse-Five, passed away at 84.
