Pre-Vacation in Two Worlds

I won't see the papers for two weeks, so I thought it was a good time to run another comparison. Today they actually share a main story! Only the one, though. The Post is concerned with the election; the Times with Benghazi! and the ACA "scandals"...

Affordable Care Act: Key emails lost since botched rollout of health care | HHS only now notified Archives
Accountability: Contractor hired to coach State officials how to testify | Bungled congressional hearings show need
Accountability: Hidden in defense bill is $20B for pet projects | Congress funds fireworks, health
Religion: Bible School Smorgasbord | Summer programs adapt to fill different needs
Republicans: RNC boos backs voiding law on overseas banking
