    Yesterday’s WH Press briefing… NORAH O’DONNELL: On that very point that it’s been the president’s position all along, in Dec. 2010, when he advocated an extension of all of the Bush tax cuts including those for the wealthiest Americans, he argued that raising taxes would be a “blow to our economy.” So what’s different now from then? CARNEY: The president’s position has always been that we should permanently extend the tax cuts for middle-class Americans and that we should no longer extend the tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans. At the time, from the question, there was a package of...

    I am happy that Smith-Corona went bankrupt and that Western Union was forced to abandon its old business practices. If the government had bailed out these companies, we’d still be banging out papers on manual typewriters and communicating by telegram. Instead, the typewriter has been relegated to museums (and perhaps a few Birkenstock-wearing, hipster screenwriters’ offices somewhere) and messaging is done over phones that are smarter than the people who keep bailing out failing companies. Actually, I’m indifferent to the success or failure of either of these particular companies, but I champion the free market- a meritocracy - Portugal Seeks...

    The most persuasive argument for legalizing pot might just be a dollar sign. California's pot crop is worth $14 billion, according to a state report. The Press Democrat points out that crushes the wine crop which comes in at $2 billion. Legalization would be a huge shot in the arm for plenty of ancillary industries, such as banking and construction.

    Updated: in the local people meter markets Leno was twice as popular with adults 18-49, scoring a 2.0 rating vs a 1.0 rating for Letterman. In the metered market houshold ratings between 11:30p-12:30a Jay Leno’s return to The Tonight Show dominated Leterman and Late Show. Leno had a 5.4/14 (household rating/share) to Letterman’s 3.0/8. Sure, Leno’s first night back (and perhaps first week or two back) is likely inflated by a post-Olympic halo, but the early indication is “all is forgiven.”

    WELLINGTON, New Zealand – A falling chunk of glacier crushed two brothers to death at a popular tourist spot, and one remained buried under ice blocks the size of large vehicles, police said Friday. The two Australians apparently ignored rope barriers set up to prevent hikers from wandering into dangerous areas.

    Welcome to the Weekend Singles' Thread!! This weekend's topic is crushes, and once again, this one wasn't my idea. The idea may still be interesting, and we'll see what people have to say. Just in case, I'm going to try to give some extra bonus questions. A couple of things are true about crushes. First, everyone has had them. Second, I'm not sure that anyone really likes admitting them. If I'm right, maybe this will be a difficult thread, but I'm not going to ask anyone to admit to anything. A third thing about crushes may be that we don't...

    COLUMBUS, OHIO - Qualifying for the World Cup is sweet, but there's no better feeling than beating your fiercest rival to punch a ticket to a contest for the planet's most coveted trophy. Just ask members of the U.S. national team. Credit the location, perfect timing or just the determination to get the job done. Whatever it was, the United States showed it Saturday night as it dispatched Mexico 2-0 before a delirious crowd of 24,685 at Columbus Crew Stadium. Steve Ralston and DaMarcus Beasley delivered the goods for the Americans, who knew entering the match they would clinch a...

    Dick Morris Lands on Best-Seller List; Coulter Crushes Hillary Dick Morris tells us that his book "Off with Their Heads: Traitors, Crooks & Obstructionists in American Politics, Media & Business," has opened at No. 11 on the New York Times' best-seller list. Considering that the book lambastes the Times for its bias and corruption, the Old Gray Lady must be turning purple with rage. By the way, several readers wanted us to alert people about some interesting changes in Amazon's best-seller list. As of this writing: Ann Coulter's "Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism"...
