Lots of good choices today, but I'll go with a Happy Birthday to Connie Booth, 69.
And a bit of good stuff:
1. We have a new Senator. Okay, not for long, but still: Sean Sullivan answers "Who is Mo Cowan?"
2. TNC on Mamet. Also: they're reading Hobbes over there, apparently. Sounds like fun...I really don't think I can justify taking on one more thing (I'm a little scared by how the collapse of the cover-up is going to play out for me over the next few months), but, well, it's a little tempting.
3. And grading Professor Hagel: Dan Drezner is up to the job.
