The Democratic National Convention has opened in Charlotte, N.C., but we won’t be covering it much. Check MSNBC — I’ll bet they have the best coverage.
The real news came from places like Pakistan, where a suicide bomb exploded outside the American consulate in Peshawar, killing three people and injuring two Americans.
Or from Russia, where President Vladimir Putin said that the country should look to Stalin’s “Great Leap Forward” of the 1930s as a model for modernizing the defense industry.
