Saturday Morning (Journalism) Quarterback

The top five stories worth reading from this past week in worth-reading stories:

The jobless rate hit 8.1% this week. If part-time, discouraged workers and the under-employed are factored in, the unemployment rate would have been 14.8 percent in February, the highest on record.

New memos revealed this week show the dictatorial scope that George W. saw in the executive branch. Essentially, a police state.

The Nation has a great article on Photography's ghosts: image and its artifice.

Alternet reports that zombie banks are devouring our money with no end in sight. In fact, we taxpayers own 80% of a worthless AIG. It's time for a bank bailout that actually works.

In environmental news: how can we avoid a world without water and, California's own water wars are not exactly what they seem.
