  1. My thoughts:

    Yea..Cardinals! They held their own against the Steelers, even if, in the end, they lost.

    Michael Phelps – stupid but typical mistake.

    Tom Daschle – stupid but typical mistake…although getting sick and tired of hearing about these high-salaried officials failing to pay their taxes AND failing to be caught by the IRS when the real
    “average Joe” making $24,000 a year gets a penalty if they take a deduction in the wrong box.

  2. uhh should i be coming to Louisville!

  3. and…Johanna Sigurdardottir is sworn in as Iceland’s new PM, the world’s first openly gay leader (since Caligula?) who has said she’ll focus on women’s issues in addition to the rather pressing issue of the collapsed Icelandic economy. On that front, she’s pushing for Iceland to join the EU, a big step for the sometimes isolationist country.

    I don’t know why, but this makes me super happy. I hope she does a great job and is elected in May during the proper election.
