A few items of possible interest:

1. Me and a buddy of mine discussed this story when it first came out, but now it's back in the news. Very brief synopsis: after an appropriations bill passes congress, but before it goes to preznit for signing, corrupt senator from Alaska somehow goes in and fracks with the wording of the bill so that one of his campaign contributors in Florida (Florida!) gets a $10M highway interchange that will benefit his business (and only his business).

2. What goes through the heads of people who would do something like this? (link via The Agitator).

3. Man with no science or medical background finds (potential) cure for cancer using wife's baking pans and some hot dogs. (no, this is not a joke.)

4. There Will Be Blood is one of the best movies I've ever seen.

5. And, somewhat relatedly, DC Park Police drink Thomas Jefferson's milkshake. See also this, which manages to work in the seemingly mandatory Footloose reference in the very first graf.
