UM professor Martin Nie authored a discussion paper that's been published at Headwaters News and High Country News, and been linked to a bunch of places (including in the comments section of our site).

1. The Boston Phoenix looks at how Glen Beck's driven by ... Mormonism? And asks, "Is Glenn Beck a Latter-day taint?" A fantastic read.
2. The Cleveland Scene profiles the survivor of an attempted execution by lethal injection. "Romell Broom endured more than two hours of poking and stabbing before his date with death was called off indefinitely" by the state of Ohio. Wow.
3. Tucson Weekly looks into some fishy financial figures with the US-Mexico border.
