In Syrian coverage, we looked at the implications of the UK’s refusal to get involved, wondered where the anti-war protesters are, gawked at the Obama administration’s bumbling of the crisis, and underscored how decisively the American public wants the president to go to Congress. Brendan’s two cents on the looming war here.
Two other big stories we covered were the Treasury’s decision to treat all same-sex couples equally and the DOJ’s decision to stay out of the way of Washington and Colorado on cannabis. Readers chipped in more on childhood classics and Chinese tourists. And the many faces of an incoming baseball surged on Facebook.
