Short Takes

There was more violence yesterday in Afghanistan; this time it was an attack on the UN in Kabul.

Why did Matthew Hoh resign his position over our policy in Afghanistan?

Secretary of State Clinton is in Pakistan to try to ease anti-American tensions.

Iran’s response to the UN’s nuclear deal is interesting.

Centrist Democrats are wobbling on Sen. Reid’s healthcare proposal.

And then there’s Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT).

Bridge Out — An emergency repair to the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge went wrong and the bridge is closed indefinitely.

The launch of the test rocket to replace the shuttle was delayed by winds.

Smart power — Florida will get $200 million for “smart grid” technology.

We keep talking about Cuba, but no one seems to be doing anything about it. But you might be able to fly there from Fort Lauderdale at some point.
