Before you jet off to Brussels for your euro-summit, take our latest Week to Week news quiz to see what else happened this week. Here are some random...
When reporters covering presidential politics employ words they fully know will disparage female candidates -- or when they purport to discern dishonesty by examining candidates' facial expressions -- they are taking journalistic prerogative too far.
More troubling news emerged this past weekend for those trying to prop up the once solid, now faltering, bipartisan backing for Israel.
Given that major media coverage of this issue has been virtually non-existent, it seems unlikely that major media will successfully press Hillary to clarify her position on Israeli settlements in the West Bank unless the issue is raised by another candidate.
Republicans are clear. The GOP wants to unleash the same unregulated market forces on education that brought us stagnating wages, accelerating inequality and increasing school segregation. Here is the short stump speech I wish the Democratic candidates would give.
If you truly want to understand the future of American politics, look no further than The Selfie Vote. It's a fascinating, well-researched and well-argued read, and also a reassuring one.
I may be the only one of my friends who does not find the Trump candidacy amusing. Nor am I looking forward to the August Republican debate as some sort of laugh riot.
Although the Clinton campaign is expected to raise $2.5 billion, some things can't be purchased with money. Enthusiasm is a precious form of currency in American politics, and Bernie Sanders is filling arenas with thousands of people.

Friends say Greece has been adjusting to this new living situation with surprising ease. "All he does is sleep, hang out at our old high school, and play Alien Crush on his TurboGrafx 16," says Herman Wittle, a former classmate of Greece's.

Still more believe that science has become so complex that politicians are incapable of talking about it, that no one but scientists can discuss it. But science is now so integral to every aspect of our lives that it has to be talked about by those who wield power.
