* The Stanley Aronowitz talk from this weekend’s conference will hopefully be up soon, but until then here are the two recent pieces from which it was primarily drawn: “Facing the Economic Crisis” and “Reflections on Seattle 1999.”

* A torture session in Iran took a strange turn when an elite policeman told his captive, a Newsweek reporter, that he believed New Jersey must be heaven on earth.

* Al Gore’s plan to out-crazy the crazy.

* And a must-read post from Matt Taibi on Sarah Palin and what has happened to the culture wars.
