2. Yaaay, ladies!
3. There we are! A Topic for Maureen Dowd. Skip Gates, a cop and Obama.
4. Do you know what the last sentence that will ever be written in an newspaper? “Robot builds robot.” (Thanks, Sara.)
5. And a rather lengthy editorial on health care! A guaranteed lock.
7 . Bears! Grrrrrrrrrrrrr!
8. We didn’t even read this. The blurb is too upsetting.
9. A little fashion Web site gets more hits than Style.com!
10. Very sad story from China.
