I know a place where the grass is really greener:

— Rep. Boehner responds to accusations that he’s at too many happy hours by saying that he’s actually fundraising.

— On the day Iceland’s same-sex marriage law went into effect, the Prime Minister married her long-term partner.

— Adam Serwer explains the limitations of the cable news format and also explains why he’ll continue to participate.

— Why is Italy doing so well with solar power infrastructure compared to the U.S.?

— E.J. Dionne tees off on Democrats whining that John Kerry cares too much about climate change.
