Yesterday’s remarks about North Korea at Obama’s press conference were nice, but something more is clearly needed. A well-placed source provided FDL with a document purporting to be a memo from Obama to his senior staff, drafted yesterday after the press conference.

Terry Jones, of Monty Python, on why he’s becoming an arms manufacturer. The forecast is good he says. Sales are up. And it doesn’t look like growth will slow any time soon.
