Politics here and abroad

Feb 13, 2014

Even with the Sochi 2014 Olympics still under way, Russia seems hell-bent on more contentious legislation: today's latest is a new gay adoption law that bans adoptions by single people from any country where same-sex marriage is legal. WSJ's Paul Sonne wrote that story.

Meanwhile, Bloomberg BusinessWeek's Peter Coy makes the economic case for more than the minimum wage. "We did six covers this week. Each one tells a different story," Josh Tyrangiel there explained. CNN's Annalyn Kurtz seemed to be a fan. "Congrats to BW on the 'real people' covers," Kurtz tweeted.

Also in US politics, The New Republic's Alec MacGillis covers the rapid rise and fall of Chris ChristieNew York TimesNick Confessore summarized it, "TNR's @AlecMacGillis: 'It's not just the bridge.' How Christie mastered the NJ machine." Pete Bigelow at AOL Autos tweeted the tidbit, "Fun fact: Cory @CoryBooker is the first mayor of Newark not to be indicted since 1962."
