NEW YORK -- I am still here, covering the Clinton Global Initiative -- but I am missing the big show in Washington, where Sen. Ted Cruz is, quite literally, the talk of the town.
Not surprisingly, two of today's three top reads focus on the combative Texas Republican. First, the conservative Weekly Standard takes a closer look at who Ted Cruz really is. And then The Washington Post poses the question: is Cruz pushing the government toward a shutdown that will be a gift to Democrats?
Meanwhile, on a hugely important issue that has not gotten much ink as of late, Politico tells us that the Pentagon remains secretive on military sex crimes.
