Bits and Pieces for the Week of October 10 - 16

Candidate Brewer contradicts Gov. Brewer (7 of 6)

Yes, there are Republi-con obstructionists in the Senate. "Federal Reserve Board nominee Peter Diamond won the Nobel Prize in Economics... Yet, despite the fact that President Obama nominated this Nobel laureate to the Fed nearly six months ago, his nomination is currently being blocked by just one senator. Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL) believes that this year’s winner of the highest honor in the economics profession is unqualified to actually set economic policy..." (7 of 6)

Thank goodness! Challenge to Immigration Law Is Upheld. "A Federal District Court judge ruled Friday that one of the main lawsuits seeking to overturn Arizona’s new immigration law could go forward, despite efforts by Gov. Jan Brewer and several sheriffs to have the suit thrown out." (7 of 6)
