Sunday Morning Links (08/15/10)

Another edition of Sunday Morning Links (I somehow forgot about last Sunday!). I know I promised some posts last week but the material has gotten rough. I will post what my thoughts are in a couple days and see where I can go next. Anyway, click through for my favorite stories of the last week.
