America's Counter-Revolution
The Constitution Revisited

From the back cover:

This book challenges the assumption that the Constitution was a landmark in the struggle for liberty. Instead, Sheldon Richman argues, it was the product of a counter-revolution, a setback for the radicalism represented by America’s break with the British empire. Drawing on careful, credible historical scholarship and contemporary political analysis, Richman suggests that this counter-revolution was the work of conservatives who sought a nation of “power, consequence, and grandeur.” America’s Counter-Revolution makes a persuasive case that the Constitution was a victory not for liberty but for the agendas and interests of a militaristic, aristocratic, privilege-seeking ruling class.

The Vanishing Washington Post AIPAC Headline

This was the headline on today's Washington Post page-two story about Vice President Joe Biden's appearance at the AIPAC (Israel Lobby) conference. It's curious to say the least. Loyalty? Whose loyalty to whom? Also curious is the fact that this headline did not make the online HTML edition of the Post. It was changed to "Biden seeks to reassure AIPAC of U.S. commitment to Israel."

The website also features an e-Replica of the newspaper, but the three times I tried to view page A2, I received this message:

404 - File or directory not found.

The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

Was the Post embarrassed by its headline?
