Barack Obama announces an end to the decade-and-counting-long War on Terror although Gitmo remains open for business. Is the Obama Administration all over the map when it comes to terror? The Administration also continues to take criticism for Eric Holder's dubious handing of the First Amendment and monitoring journalists. Is Obama really "worse than Nixon?" The Boy Scouts voted this week to admit gay scouts but deferred a decision on adult gay scout leaders. Are the scouts going far enough reflect the large cultural shift in opinions about gay rights by recognizing the reality of gay scouts? Is Apple the good guy or bad guy when it comes to dodging corporate taxes? The IRS scandal stands in contrast to legislators' glowing criticism of Apple. Can Anthony Weiner make a clean comeback in the race for the mayor of New York? And a staggeringly low percentage of Los Angeles votes chose Eric Garcetti to be their next mayor. Lots of news and lots to discuss this week.
