Here's the thing about the Internet for news junkies — there are so many digital news outlets just a mouse click away, but who's got time to read them all? Nobody, that's who!

So in the Washington Examiner's never-ending obsession with helping readers make sense of it all, herewith is the latest installment of what is hoped to be a staple of everybody's Saturday morning surfing: Fifteen significant news stories — three for each day of the workweek just past — on the "next page" to which you didn't have time to turn:

Monday:

Tuesday:

Wednesday:

Thursday:

If this is a recovery, why are most of us making less now than when the Great Recession of 2008 started? Two former Census Bureau data jockeys deliver some really bad economic news.

Wonder what Joe said to Hillary at the Harkin Steak Fry? The Daily Beast's Ben Jacobs is paying attention.

What?!? A conservative arguing for the unions in Detroit bankruptcy? At least let Conservative Intelligence Briefing's David Freddoso explain his own self.

Friday:

You can't help any child if you don't help every child? Really? How about helping every child you can, says the Cato Institute's Jason Bedrick.

Why would anybody want to ruin their state? Somebody did in California, New York and seven other states, in a mere five steps described by NRO's Kevin Williamson.
