For general discussion and debate. Possible talking point: North Korea launches rocket.
North Korea fired a long-range rocket over Japan on Sunday, provoking international outrage and triggering an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council as it succeeded in grabbing the world's attention. The reclusive communist state's official media said a satellite had been launched into orbit, and it was now circling the earth transmitting revolutionary songs. But both the U.S. military and South Korea said nothing had entered orbit. U.S. President Barack Obama said the U.N. Security Council should deliver a strong message to North Korea for what analysts believe was effectively a test of a ballistic missile designed to carry a warhead potentially as far as Alaska.
Wait a minute: wasn't North Korea involved in such activities because of George W. Bush? Wasn't the world going to immediately become a safe place once Obama became president? How can this be that North Korea and Iran are still pursuing such weaponry with The One in the White House? Maybe more important, what will the healer of all evil things do about this OTHER than call on the U.N.? And will media gush and fawn over his response whatever it is?

For general discussion and debate. Possible talking point: Give President Obama a Grade.The good folks over at MSNBC.com are asking what readers think of Obama's performance. Given the leaning of their viewers, you can imagine how this will be skewed.With that in mind, let's give these folks a hand (h/t NB reader Stephany).

Well, sports fans, we finally got a great game in this tournament. Was yesterday's Villanova-Pitt classic on par with the Duke-Kentucky semifinal in 1992? Probably not...but it was a humdinger, and a real delight from opening tipoff to final buzzer!Do either of today's games show such promise?
Regardless of how your brackets are doing, this has NOT been a very good tournament as there really haven't been many good games. In fact, that's GOT to be the WORST Sweet Sixteen in years with six of the eight games total blowouts. Will today be different?4:40 PM ET (3) Missouri vs. (1) Connecticut7:05 PM ET (3) Villanova vs. (1) PittsburghAnything else?
