Can You See Me Now?  —  Federal agents routinely request tracking data from cellphone companies to determine the travel and assembly habits of suspects, and courts have granted them unusual leeway in obtaining the data.  Are these terrorist suspects that could present a clear and imminent danger to the lives of Americans?

David Brooks / New York Times:
The Real Rudy  —  Rudy Giuliani can play a little rough at times, but there are some moments when an inner light turns on and he turns downright idealistic.  One of those moments came on Oct. 10, 1996, as he stepped on the podium at the Kennedy School of Government to deliver a speech on immigration.

Ian Black / Guardian:
