They are troubled, these working parents from around the country. They are talking about their marriages, about the stress that afflicts the dual-career family, about how that stress intensifies when the family includes children. As working mother Jane Pauley, host of this latest "NBC White Paper" documentary, "Women, Work and Babies: Can America Cope?" points out, "Frankly, it's not a lot of good news."

Two and a half years after a drone strike in Yemen killed New Mexico-born Anwar Awlaki, a federal appeals court has ordered the Obama administration to release a confidential memorandum that explains the legal justification for its extraordinary decision to assassinate a U.S. citizen. The administration should promptly comply. Monday's unanimous ruling by a three-judge panel of the U.S. 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals was the result of a lawsuit by the New York Times and the American Civil Liberties Union to force release of a memo prepared by the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel.

Some say they see the ghost of Airey Neave in the British government's plans for the future of its broadcasting industry. Neave was the architect of Margaret Thatcher's successful 1975 campaign to head the Conservative Party. And from then until he was killed by a car bomb as he drove out of the House of Commons parking lot only weeks before she became prime minister in 1979, Neave was Thatcher's personal secretary.

Although there's a lot more interest in recycling these days, The Los Angeles Times is right to say that Southern California Gas Co.'s white paper recycling program isn't new--it's just more of a good thing. But you missed the point. The new and exciting part of this recycling program is that the gas company's trash is turned into cash to support the Volunteer Center of the San Fernando Valley. Lots of organizations, including the city of Los Angeles, have been recycling white paper for years.

The analysis, authored by Shirley E. Mills, vice president and senior research analyst, looked at various changes in the landscape affecting U.S. manufacturing opportunities, and it concluded that the best investment opportunities might not involve large-scale manufacturers.

The Japanese government has revamped its dry 654-page economic white paper to make it more palatable to the reader. It's now a 22-page cartoon book.

In 2011, Anwar Awlaki, a U.S. citizen, was reportedly targeted and killed by our government in a drone attack. Ever since, a chorus of scholars, lawyers and civil and human rights activists has been asking about due process. Now we know they were right to be concerned. The Obama administration's lawyers have gotten it wrong. The Justice Department "white paper" leaked early this month raises many troubling legal, ethical and policy questions, but none is more fundamental to our democracy than the way it deals with the 5th Amendment's admonition: No American citizen shall "be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law. " The administration memo concludes that there are no due process problems with a drone program that targets Americans, and it relies primarily on Hamdi vs. Rumsfeld, a 2004 Bush-era Supreme Court decision, to justify that conclusion.

Thursday's confirmation hearings for John Brennan, President Obama's nominee to head the Central Intelligence Agency, offer a rare opportunity for senators to press the architect of the administration's policy of targeted killings about its legal rationale and practical application. The urgency of such an inquiry was underlined by the release this week of a troubling Justice Department document suggesting that the administration asserts the authority to assassinate suspected terrorists, including U.S. citizens, even when they aren't planning an imminent attack - guidelines that could allow for a broad expansion of executive power to authorize such killings.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Dario Franchitti won his third Indianapolis 500 on Sunday in a thrilling finish to a race that saw a record number of more than 30 lead changes. As the white flag waved for the last lap in the 200-lap race, Japanese driver Takuma Sato tried to pass Franchitti for the lead on the inside of Turn 1 of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. But Sato then lost control, spun and smacked the wall. That brought out the caution period and Franchitti had his third Brickyard victory on a scorching hot day with temperatures in the low 90s. He also won the famed race in 2007 and 2010.

But at 3 p.m., a staffer said it would not be released Saturday as expected.

For the first time in the yearlong political battle over the California Supreme Court, a justice has responded to critics with a case-by-case defense of the court's record. Angered by a recent critique of civil opinions, Associate Justice Joseph R. Grodin, one of three justices marked for defeat by conservative opposition groups, did what none of his colleagues have been willing to do up to now: He talked about court decisions in an effort to rebut what critics have said about those cases.

Preventing self-radicalized Muslim Americans from engaging in or abetting acts of terrorism is obviously a national priority. But a new Obama administration position paper offers an implausible approach to achieving that objective. The blueprint , titled "Empowering Local Partners to Prevent Violent Extremism in the United States," mentions other sorts of terrorism, but its focus is on that fueled by Islamic extremism (though it doesn't use that term). Its recommendation is that the federal government engage in "strengthening community partnerships and preventing violent extremism … as a facilitator, convener, and source of information.
