Richard Clarke is interviewed on All Things Considered, commenting on Condoleezza Rice's testimony today before the 9/11 commission.
This is a great book cover. "A cutting-edge way of surviving change by shifting the blame." Yeah, I know a few people who do that.
Salon: "It's amazing to listen to Rice discuss the critical role Clarke played before 9/11."

Arianna Huffington loves blogs. I know what she means and I know why. Recently I watched an episode of The American Experience about the Three Mile Island disaster. Lots of video, a long time ago, I was an adult when it happened. I remember it well. Very dramatic. At stake was western Pennsylvania, and if the wind was blowing the wrong way, the most populated and richest part of the US. One of the interviews was with a journalist who describes the excitement of covering the story and his own anger and how that changed how he covered the story. At one point he quiets down and says "I guess I wasn't being a journalist." I wanted to shake him. To me, that's just when you started. It was an exciting story, a real drama, and as a user of news, I felt it. That's when journalism is working, when it not only helps you know things, but when it also helps you feel what's going on.
