    For more than a decade, the economy has failed to grow the way it once did. Unemployment has not stayed this high, this long, since the 1930s. But could the New Normal, as this long economic slog has been called, be growing old? That is the surprising new view of a number of economists in academia and on Wall Street, who are now predicting something the United States has not experienced in years: healthier, more lasting growth. The improving outlook is one reason the stock market has risen so sharply this year, even if street-level evidence for a turnaround, like...

    Anybody know what the vote was on Mike Brown's confirmation via the Senate? I've been trying to find this out. I think this guy will be the fall guy but that's not really why I'm asking. A lot of my liberal "colleagues" are screaming about cronyism and my guess is that this guy was confirmed by the entire Senate or damn close. Can't seem to find the information, however.

    TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — Michael Moore isn't the apologetic type. Any regrets over proclaiming to a worldwide audience during last year's Academy Awards ceremony that George W. Bush was a "fictitious president ... sending us to war for fictitious reasons"? No way. But the crusading leftist author and filmmaker does have a small confession: That rip-roaring acceptance speech after his "Bowling for Columbine" won the Oscar for best documentary almost went undelivered. "Every bone in my body wanted to just thank them, blow them a kiss and walk off the stage," Moore confides, stirring whipped cream into a steaming...
