Dan Collins: Anthony Weiner Gives Us Another Reason to Vote for Women
New York Editor-At-Large of The Huffington Post
Just before Anthony Weiner went before the cameras to announce his Twittering problem Monday, he confessed all to Nancy Pelosi. "She was not happy," he reported. Poor Nancy. Pelosi and GOP House leader John Boehner must feel as if they've spent half their recent careers listening to congressmen from New York describe their strange sexual habits. Beyond the incredible humiliation, New Yorkers have got to take stock in their political future. Who's going to look out for the state when its lawmakers keep crashing and burning?

Teresa Strasser, 06.06.2011

David Ropeik, 06.06.2011
Author, 'How Risky Is It, Really?'
The actual danger E. coli poses to vegetable-eating Europeans is low. But then, we don't just use the scientific evidence to figure out what's dangerous -- risk perception is a mix of facts and feelings.

Intensive Care Required For US Economy
Robert Lenzner, 06.06.2011
Forbes columnist
What cures are there for pathetically small job creation and the suffocating weakness in real home prices? Dr. Bernanke has no magic potions. Washington is bewildered. The big Wall Street houses are just plain wrong on their prognostications.

Even When a Great Film Comes Out, You Can't See It (Except Maybe in New York)
John Farr, 06.06.2011
Editor, bestmoviesbyfarr.com
Mindless kiddie fare opens at around four thousand screens across the country. When at last a brilliant, provocative film for grown-ups gets produced, it merited four screens. Doesn't this strike you as just a trifle lopsided?

Here's a question that arises from the John Edwards case: How many other politicians have owed the kind of secret political debt that he did? It wasn't inevitable that Edwards' secret would come out. Other secrets haven't.

Looking for War in All the Wrong Places
Gary Hart, 06.06.2011

Wars have always been fought principally between and among nation-states or countries. Now comes the 21st century and the new threats we face are not from the governments of other countries. What is a traditional military to do under these circumstances?

E. Coli: Blame the Meat, Not the Sprouts
David Katz, M.D., 06.06.2011
Director, Yale Prevention Research Center
Since the source and origins of this E.coli outbreak are still matters of conjecture, how can we exonerate the plant foods on which it is currently hitching a ride? We can do it by learning from the follies of history.

Did Anthony Weiner Want to Get Caught?
Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, 06.06.2011
Rabbi and writer
This isn't rocket science. Men like Anthony Weiner live in the permanent fear that they are not special. Their greatest fear is that they are ordinary. And they spend their lives trying to disprove that fear.
