* Analysis: Michael Hirsh with facts and fiction on the stimulus.
* The BBC has excepts from Biden's speech on foreign policy priorities of the new administration. (Full text here.)

* Neat story about the Mormon filmmaker and the lesbian priest.
* Ugh. Network TV reconsiders the sitcom.
* Neat: one of the last things Updike wrote was an article on Mars.
