Rachel Maddow: Two words: Supreme Court

post-gazette.com — When they announce that they are running for president, deliver their stump speeches, make their ads or head out on their "listening tours" trailed by caravans of reporters, we get to hear how the candidates talk to everyday Americans.

Opinion: Craft beer and the resurgence of America's economy

northjersey.com — Confidence in the U.S. recovery is growing. Just ask New England's breweries. THE WOMAN in the cute fake fur coat got out of her car and immediately slipped on the ice in the parking lot. "Is this it?" she yelled, laughing and grabbing the car door to keep from falling.

Maddow: Ask New England's breweries about economic recovery

sltrib.com — A lot of places in the country have a claim on great beer right now. Even the Germans and Belgians will admit that the best beers in the world are being brewed by American craft brewers, and there are pockets of world-class excellence in California, Colorado, Ohio, Michigan - all over.
