    Two Norwegian politicians have nominated Edward Snowden for the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize. They should ask to transfer over the one they gave to President Barack Obama.

  • The cold weather has turned Atlanta into an apocalyptic landscape about which several comparisons to The Walking Dead have been made.
  • The Supreme Court ordered a temporary stay of the execution of a Missouri man. Opponents are pointing to the state's lack of transparency about the drugs they're using to execute prisoners as a problem.
  • The House has passed the $1 trillion farm bill. It cuts food stamps slightly and one farm subsidy but expands the crop insurance program.
  • Egypt will be putting 20 Al Jazeera journalists, including four foreign reporters, on trial for aiding members of the now-banned Muslim Brotherhood as Al Jazeera correspondents.
  • A White House petition demanding the deportation of Justin Bieber has reached the threshold of 100,000 to garner a response. I was going to suggest that 100,000 folks should prepare for disappointment, but given the Obama administration's reputation for deporting people, they may get what they want.
