Some stories I've run across today:
From the Washington Post, the UN General Assembly has decided to recognize the "state" of Palestine.
In Breitbart's Big Government, John Nolte tells the Republicans to go ahead and take us over the fiscal cliff.
From the Weekly Standard, when Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner told Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell about President Obama's proposal for avoiding the fiscal cliff, McConnell "burst into laughter".
From the USA Today, House Speaker John Boehner isn't too pleased with Obama's proposal, either.
From Newsbuster, columnist Charles Krauthammer goes as far as saying that Lee was offered better terms at Appomattox.
From KTVU, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has announced that he will shut down a historic oyster farm operating along Point Reyes National Seashore.
From the Examiner, Obama orders the CIA to close down its Center on Climate Change and National Security. You know, maybe there's a start to some spending cuts.
From CNS News, Congressman Hank Johnson calls for a Constitutional Amendment to control the speech of corporations. This is the same guy who was worried that if you put too many Marines on Guam, it might capsize.
From Yahoo News, former president and occasional sky-diver George H. W. Bush has been hospitalized with bronchitis.
From Life News, a medical board in New Mexico has been accused of illegally closing a hearing to discipline an abortionist who botched a 35-week abortion, leaving a woman with a ruptured uterus.
From NBC News, six middle school students in Richmond, VA have been charged with assaulting a bus driver.
And from SFGate, a graduate of East New Mexico University has sent his alma mater a box of toilet paper, to atone for stealing toilet paper while enrolled (if you'll forgive the pun) as a student.
