"Pure Face Emerging from Scars of War," by Carolyn Davis in the Sunday, March 19, edition of the Philadelphia Inquirer: an update on Jennifer Anyayo, the Ugandan girl brought to the area for intensive surgery to repair injuries sustained in that country's civil war.

"Attack of the Pandas," by Mark Magnier in the Los Angeles Times of March 21.

"Russ Never Sleeps," by Chris Lehmann, a story about Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.) in the March 27 issue of the New York Observer.

"Lewis Lapham Lights Up," by Peter Carlson, the Washington Post, March 21, on the inestimable departing editor of Harper's.

"Clear and Present Dangers," by Columbia University history professor Alan Brinkley, a review of American Theocracy: The Peril and Politics of Radical Religion, Oil, and Borrowed Money in the 21st Century, by Kevin Phillips.
