r7oarThe Minnesota Senate race is ongoing. The recount is finished but the challenges drag on. Once again, the courts might be the final decision in this battle. Norm Coleman is up in the count but Al Franken is up in the challenges and also up in the count Huh? Stay tuned. Here is what my guy, Nate Silver has to say on the topic.

–  In a karmic smile we salute Eric Shinseki, who tomorrow will be named Obama’s nominee for Veterans Affairs Secretary. Shinseki was fired by the Bush thugs for his stance on the Iraq War.

–  According to Frank Rich, The Brightest are not always the Best. Another great piece by the master.

– For a moment of lightness. Check out the late night jokes of the week.

– A word about Sunny von Bulow. As you know, she died in a Manhattan nursing home yesterday after 28 years in a coma. A multimillionaire born to parents who had a shoe fortune and ran an electric company respectively, the events leading up to her coma triggered charges against her second husband for attempted murder and would create the setting for trials that were media spectacles in the ’80s when Claus von Bulow was convicted and but later acquitted in a retrial for poisoning his wife. Those trials along with the battle among her stepchildren over Mrs. von Bulow’s riches would inspire the movie Reversal of Fortune starring Jeremy Irons and Glenn Close. Mrs. von Bulow attended the Chapin School in Manhattan many years ago and is survived by three daughters, a son and five grandchildren. May she finally rest in peace.

–  Let’s hope that we can now close the book on this piece of human crap:

–  A winter visit to the Bronx Zoo is always filled with surprises. I spent much of my time watching the adorable six month old sea lion pup, Katy. I had so many photos it cried out for two montages and a new video. Enjoy!

–  Smile for the day. Watch my Katy the sea lion pup play with a leaf:
