SOME NEWS:
* The CIA reported the Maliki government was "unable to govern." Last year.
* NYTimes public editor on Bush name-dropping al Qaeda.
* White House blocks the revival of the Iraq Study Group.
* "Bush's commutation of a prison term for a former aide to Vice President Cheney did not play well with the public or even Republicans."
* The science of parking.
