    Morning Bell: What Did Apple Do Wrong?

    Members of Congress called Apple executives to testify on Capitol Hill yesterday. Why? Because the company makes money overseas, and some Senators want to get their hands on the cash.

    Morning Bell: The IRS Wants to Know If You're a "Patriot"

    Across this great land, patriotic Americans are behaving subversively. We’re quoting from our pocket Constitutions, starting reading groups to discuss our founding documents, even gathering together to “petition the government for a redress of grievances.” Uncle Sam is not amused. As leaders of tea party groups have been painfully aware … More
