In Today's Web Magazine


The Editors praise the Governator's foray into universal health care but warn against compromising on a national plan too quickly; Michael Currie Schaffer says that a "dignified" execution chamber wouldn't have made Saddam's execution any more dignified; James Kirchick points out that Massachusetts lawmakers' refusal, in defiance of their Constitution, to put referenda on the ballot (as they recently did with gay marriage) is nothing new; Reuel Marc Gerecht makes a final jab at Lawrence Korb's "surge" critique; and Simon Blackburn calls the late philosopher Bernard Williams an first-rate iconoclast.
