Hot off the Griddle: November 15

Good morning, and welcome to The Griddle, a morning menu of fortified items for the busy person's media diet. With Bangkok under water and Occupy Wall Street under arrest, the quote of the day comes from SmartPlanet columnist John Rennie: “Global warming’s connection to extreme weather events has always been as diffuse as the economy’s tie to unemployment. The difference is that no one has tried to pretend that the economy is irrelevant."
