Swimming for my life:

— States with high levels of federal spending back McCain but it’s not clear what we can infer from this fact.

“In Praise of Realism (and Against ‘Nonsense’ Jurisprudence)”.

— Excited to see Katee Sackoff back on TV.

— Exxon paid no corporate income tax in 2009.

— Obama administration boosting programs for low-income renters.

— Jennifer Abel stands up for Iceland’s strippers.

— Are Democrats going to blow the Illinois Senate race.

From Oh No Ono, my second-favorite Danish band, comes “Swim”.
