- Senators on the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee are shocked—shocked!—to discover the federal government is providing $1 billion in military gear every year to police departments around the country.
- So much to do, and nobody to do it—the Obama administration finds itself shorthanded as "talent" heads for the doors and the Senate seems in no rush to confirm a new batch of seatwarmers.
