Monday Links

Once again, a look at some things going on out there:

From Aol(dot)com, a federal judge has ruled that in his lawsuit to overturn the suspension handed down by baseball arbitrator Frederic Horowitz, Alex Rodriguez cannot include the parts of the arbitrator's decision that are under seal.

From Reuters, the U.S. government posted a budget surplus for December, largely the result of payments by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

From The Washington Free Beacon, Iran vows to "never" dismantle its nuclear infrastructure.

From Life Site News, pro-lifers have converted a former late-term abortion clinic administrator.

From the Los Angeles Times, the spiritual path of Marianne Williamson, who seeks to unseat Congressman Henry Waxman (D-Cal).

From CNN, more trouble might be in store for Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ), whose use of Superstorm Sandy relief funds has come under federal investigation.

From Townhall, Florida prosecutors have dropped stalking and battery charges against former tennis player Jennifer Capriati.

From Gateway Pundit, the labor participation rate among blacks has hit its lowest level ever.  (via Gulf Dogs)

From Fox Business, the Japanese alcohol company Suntory has reached an agreement to acquire the American alcohol company Beam, makers of Jim Beam, Maker's Mark and other brands.  It looks like we'll be able to buy whiskey and sake from the same corporation.

From Fox News, according to Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), survivors of the attack in Benghazi have told FBI interviewers that the attack was an act or terrorism, and not a protest of demonstration.

From The Blaze, Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) illustrates how we've become "a nation of regulations".

From Rare, the media's "double standard in scandals".

From National Review, the coming millennial disillusionment with liberalism.

From Bloomberg, information gathering by the NSA has had "no impact on terrorism".  I will point out that whatever they were doing, it certainly didn't catch the Tsarnaev brothers before they bombed last year's Boston Marathon.

And from Weird Asia News, a billboard in India intended to honor the recently deceased South African leader Nelson Mandela shows a picture, not of Mandela, but of American actor Morgan Freeman.
