The Foundation for Defense of Democracies has been given a free pass by the WSJ to argue for sanctions that will starve ordinary people, and for a new war based on distorted facts. We saw with Iraq what happens when the media turns a blind eye to the blatant distortion of reality.
I urge those who have or would have paywalls to continue to treat the arts as a loss leader and maintain that coverage online for free or almost free, outside of local and national news, business coverage and sports.
You're going to hear a lot of talk from President Obama's supporters today about why Romney's vastly superior performance didn't matter. Don't believe it. In fact, the first debate is going to matter a great deal in the days ahead.

Mitt Romney has said that this election is about one thing: jobs. If I were drafting President Obama's convention speech, here's how I would re-frame and respond.

Although I grew up in New York and have lived there for many years, I have a summer studio in Maine. Every summer I pack up and go to paint following the tradition of so many of America's painters from Winslow Homer to Alex Katz.
