Happy Birthday to Albert Pujols, 33. He's so good that he was able to do something that only the Panda and a couple of other guys could do.
And just a little good stuff:
1. Barack Obama doesn't take questions from the press corps very often. Donovan Slack has the story, with numbers from Martha Kumar.
2. Really good reporting and analysis from David S. Bernstein (yeah, I know, but I wouldn't say it if it wasn't true) on field-clearing and the Massachusetts Democrats.
3. An nice slideshow explaining filibusters, from Newsbound. I wish they would put less emphasis on "silent," and also wish that they didn't treat cloture votes as the One True Measure of filibusters, but still it's nice work.
