Waiting for 2010 #133: News Links: 60 in the Senate; Beck's Background; Bombshell beyond the Electra Complex

I have no time to rant tonight because I must get to the second lesson of my current Pimsleur course (out of ten, I believe) as soon as possible, and then fire up the FireWire interface for some audiobook production.  Instead, here are some links to yesterday's news:

An emergency declaration to announce the late Ted Kennedy's replacement will likely give the Democrats their 60 in the Senate again.  Now if they can all get on the same page regarding health care reform, maybe things will get done, with little distraction from the solution-less noisemakers.

Salon looks into the background of the new leader of the noisemakers, Glenn Beck.  The article highlights some contradictions in Beck's own autobiographical anecdotes, as well as the Top 40 D.J. techniques used by the ringleader of the "9/12" angry conservative, yet ironically collectivist, mob.

It's safe to say that we were all a bit creeped out today by Mackenzie Phillips' allegation of incest against her late Papa John (of the Mamas and the Papas).  It's a sad, strange story.

Well, I must continue some self-education and D.I.Y. production.  Until tomorrow...
