Albert Mohler is back from his summerly hiatus and has started into his second season of his podcast “The Briefing.” If you aren’t a regular listener to this program, you need to be. It is Mohler’s daily commentary on items in the news, and he packs it all in about 15 minutes or less. It’s smart and steeped in a Christian worldview perspective.
Mohler’s take on the debt-ceiling crisis from today’s program is as thoughtful and balanced as any I’ve heard. I highly recommend that you listen to it.

In the podcast, Mohler recommends a recent Wall Street Journal article that gives a brief history of how the U.S. got into such a fiscal mess. It’s titled “The Road to a Downgrade: A short history of the entitlement state,” and you can download it here.
