Obama: Editor-in-Chief

I was struck by this picture I saw on The New Yorker’s Book Bench blog, which they found on the White House’s Flickr photo account. Those are the president’s hands. That’s Jon Favreau, his speechwriter, next to him. Just...

Pick of the Day: Believe in the bloom

It’s cool and wet this morning. A front is coming through. The air has shifted, bringing a chill that may get to freezing by Saturday morning. It’s swirling leaves and setting off my dog, who likes nothing more than...

Pick of the day: Staying with the big story

Breaking news stories rivet a newsroom like nothing else. They are our version of battle. All hands on deck. Editors bark orders, reporters fly out on assignment, geared up, rolling. It’s blood-pumping exciting. Just recently, we’ve had some big ones...

"The Lowest Comment Denominator"

We’re all about the First Amendment here at The Washington Post, but there has been some debate about the comments we let readers post at the end of stories and blog posts here on the web site. The comments...

Pick of the Day: Keeping the war in view

It can be hard writing about war when no one gives a damn. That might be a bit strong, but after eight years, it can seem as if every war story has been done, covered to death. Two wars...

Are Millennials lazy?

Many people -- either under their breath at the office, or in a barroom fit of self-righteousness with friends -- have sounded off about the "younger generation." The parents of Baby Boomers no doubt did it. Boomers did it....

Pick of the Day: A health reform story you can actually read

Let’s face it, the health care debate has been a little hard to follow at times. The day-to-day increments—“shell bills,” “deem and pass,” "reconciliation”—has been a tad numbing to those who aren’t riveted by the minutiae of the legislative...

Pick of the Day: Thinking of summer

Crocuses, then daffodils, then tulips. Soon the cherry blossoms will float over Washington, like so many low pink clouds. All this has erased that long winter (was the blizzard but a dream?), and focused my gaze forward. I'm thinking...

Operation Inspiration: What's the best mission name?

From Operation Iron Hammer to Operation Glad Tidings of Benevolence, the U.S. military's code names for wars and battles have shifted from the rah-rah bellicose to the sometimes cringingly diplomatic. Post reporter Chris Davenport's story on how and why...
