The Morning Must Reads (and Third and State) are going to take a break for the holidays. I will be back in service January 3, 2012.
I hope you have found the Morning Must Reads useful. If there are things I can do to make this feature even better, let me know in the comments or shoot me an e-mail. Better still, if you see stories that you think are relevant, post them in comments or send them to me.
I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday and happy New Year!
