Interesting News from Elsewhere

News or lose.

  • The Army Corp of Engineers has been held liable for some of the flooding during Hurricane Katrina. This will probably be appealed to the Supreme Court  (so sign up for Fantasy SCOTUS and make a game out of the ruling!)
  • Stupid women kill men. More accurately, men married to smart women live longer.
  • The President let funding for abstinence-only education lapse in his FY2010 budget, but Orrin Hatch (R-UT) is intent on bringing it back through the Senate health bill.
  • Tomorrow, the Senate will vote about whether or not to bring the health care bill to the floor. Political Junkie Ken Rudin (from NPR) is running a contest where you can guess who’ll break rank. You have until 5pm today to enter.
