Reason Morning Links: Happy Birthday Mr. President, Raw Food Raids, and Playboy Insiders in Trouble


President Obama turns 50 today. If you're wondering what to get for the man who has everything, the answer is cash. Or a tie, maybe.

The husband of former Playboy CEO Christie Hefner is accused of insider trading. (Insert insider trader double entendre here) (Heh, I said insert.)

Rep. David Wu (D-Ore.) is officially out.

Still no Federal Aviation Administration reauthorization as Congress bails out for their August vacay. As usual, President Obama blames "politics," in which he apparently does not engage.

Your cell phone still doesn't cause brain cancer, sez science.

New at Rawesome Foods has been raided for selling raw milk. Again.
