Midmorning: Iraq timelines and top 10 books
Posted at 7:48 AM on April 4, 2007 by Bill Wareham (3 Comments)
President Bush and Congress continue to battle over whether troops should be withdrawn along a timeline and funding. At 9 a.m., Kerri Miller takes up the issue with Col. Thomas Hammes (retired), author of The Sling and the Stone; and Larry Korb, senior fellow at the Center for American Progress and a senior adviser to the Center for Defense Information. He also has served as assistant secretary of Defense on manpower, reserve affairs, installations and logistics from 1981 through 1985.
At 10 a.m., Kerri talks with a book critic who asked more than a hundred of today's most well-known writers what they think are the top ten greatest literary works of all time, and got some interesting responses. Peder Zane is book review editor for the Raleigh News & Observer and editor of Tthe Top Ten: Writers Pick Their Favorite Books. Also, Tom Perotta, a novelist whose work includes Election, Joe College and Little Children; and Gail Godwin, a novelist whose works include The Odd Woman and Queen of the Underworld.
There was a comment on this morning's show that I was hoping someone could explain to me...
It was expressed that the Pentagon is not on a wartime footing.
What does this mean?
I missed it. Who made the comment?

Kerri Miller noted it, and one of the guests agreed...
The only thing I found with google was this NY Times article...
Is this what they were talking about?
