- Because I can't resist a shout-out to the Bostonians among you, Big Papi (aka, David Ortiz, aka Red Sox number 34) became an American citizen today. [Boston Globe]
- In the citizenship travails of the less famous, Bullard High School valedictorian (and illegal immigrant) Arthur Mkoyan's deportation to Armenia has been delayed due to the introduction of a bill by Senator Diane Feinstein to make the whole family legal. Unfortunately, of the 236 bills like this introduced since 2005, only 4 passed. [CNN]
- Speaking of legal crap in California, a judge had a personal website that contained a bunch of porn that you had to monkey around in the root directory to access and now everyone is aghast that an old dude likes porn. [LA Times]
- Speaking of messing with computers, apparently China is hacking the computers of Congressional staff that work on China issues and one belonging to the Secretary of Commerce, possibly since 2006. [LA Times]
- As if you didn't know, gas prices aren't coming down any time soon. [HuffPo]
- Because of all those floods in the Midwest, neither are corn prices. [NY Times, Washington Post]

- I was gonna look for something about wine doing a body good, but I'm not sure I can talk about that anymore. It might not be totally accurate and who knows how someone will choose to interpret the First Amendment after they read the last article. So, wine might or might not be good for me, but it'll definitely get me drunk if I drink enough. That's accurate.
