>> TRUTHDIG ORIGINAL REPORTS:

Chris Hedges Interviews Chandler Davis
"The Origin of America's Intellectual Vacuum" -- The country suffers an impoverishment of ideas and analysis at a moment when we desperately need radical voices to make sense of the corporate destruction of the global economy and the ecosystem.

Steven Borowiec on Seoul's G-20 Fizzle
"G-20 Plagued By Timidity" -- The potentially explosive G-20 meeting in Seoul was smothered before anything spectacular could happen.

>> DON'T MISS THE BEST OF OUR SYNDICATED COLUMNISTS:

E.J. Dionne, Jr. on the Lame Duck Congress
"A Lame and Spineless Duck?" -- The lame-duck session of Congress that kicks off this week will test whether Democrats have spines made of Play-Doh, and whether President Obama has decided to pretend that capitulation is conciliation.

Ruth Marcus on the Budget
"Professor Obama's Teachable Moment" -- The predictably childish reactions of the left and right to the budget blueprint unveiled by the co-chairs of President Obama's debt commission offer the president a chance to play a role to which he may be uniquely suited: the grown-up in the room.

>> ON THE LIGHTER SIDE:

Andy Borowitz on the Cruise Ship and Bush's Memoirs
"Somali Pirates Refuse to Board Carnival Cruise Ships" -- In yet another public relations setback for the beleaguered cruise ship company, Somali pirates today said they would no longer board Carnival Cruise ships, citing "unsafe working conditions."
