Go back to bed! Washington is very boring this morning!
*Didn’t see this one coming: Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke says we’re probably into recession territory.
*Yes, he can win Pennsylvania, says a Politico article about a new poll showing Barack Obama in the lead in PA’s democratic primary.
*“Thirty years ago, you worked at a newspaper, you moved to a magazine, and then you wrote books or screenplays.

*And, check out this interview with Esquire writer and first time novelist Mike Sager on this very website. (I looked long and hard for one other item outside of this website that was more interesting. Then, clearly, I gave up.)
