Work is crazy today, and not even in relation to the snow. Or the Red Line issues I'm not looking forward to encountering in a couple hours.

Lots of holiday shopping done last night. Worried about a couple issues going on. More in the near future.

* How both sides of the aisle define 'compromise.'
* Local news: Governor O'Malley discusses the 2011 state budget.

* Yeah, about that missile defense thing...
