The Monday Morning Teaser

Syria. Syria. Syria.

I’m sorry if you’re sick of hearing about Syria, but I believe this is one of those rare moments when ordinary people really might make a difference. Syria stands outside the standard Republican/Democrat polarization, so a lot of Congresspeople in both parties seem honestly undecided. And it’s possible (though not certain) that President Obama won’t attack if Congress says no.

So the featured article this week “Congress is Listening. What Should You Say?” is how I thought through the Syria issue, starting from the position of someone with conflicting pro-Obama and anti-war inclinations.  It should go up about 10 Eastern time, and the weekly summary before noon.

    You began asking yourself that question fifty years ago. Decide for yourself, and take a stand. I say “yes,” and I am learning to leave it at that. On a related issue, what can you teach me about Ishmael and Isaac? Hagar and Sarah? Quite a brotherly spat, if you ask me.
