Short Takes

So Long, Farewell… U.S. forces leave major Iraqi cities.

Just one survivor has been rescued from the crash of a Yemeni airliner in the Indian Ocean.

Never Mind — China relents on requiring blocking software on PC’s sold there.

Happy new (fiscal) year — Several states are struggling to get their budgets balanced.

When did Mark Sanford have time to govern?

Banks and credit card companies are not enthusiastic about the Obama administration’s proposal to protect consumer credit. (What a shock.)

No, thanks — Major oil companies are not really interested in investing in Iraq. (Gee, I wonder why.)

It just got more expensive to drive in Florida.

Nice work if you can get it…

Tigers win in Oakland.
