Slow news day?

I missed it yesterday (as I said, twas quite the busy day), but #11 on the most emailed article list on WashingtonPost.com right now is one by Terry M. Neal entitled "Iraq War Hasn't Made United States Safer, Author Says." That's all fine and well, except that the article is based on an excerpt from a book that Stephen E. Flynn, a Senior Fellow in National Security Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, published in CFR's Foreign Affairs last October ahead of the book release!

First Kennedy makes a big deal about something Santorum wrote many years ago and now we've got journalists who don't get around to books and/or articles till almost ten months after they're published! Why can't people just keep up with things? Yes, it's hard, but it's a journalist's job. If we simple folks can manage, so can they.
