Wake-Up Call: v. important news

  • The HI Visitors and Convention Bureau is spotlighting “two dozen sites related to historic or modern Obama landmarks” on its new “microsite,” including “the Baskin-Robbins ice cream shop” where he “worked as a youth” (Honolulu Advertiser).
  • Ann Coulter reportedly “broke her jaw,” and her mouth “has been wired shut” (New York Post). What a shame.
  • Treas. Sec.-designate Tim Geithner “skateboards and snowboards,” and also uses “‘way’ as a synonym for ‘very’ — as in ‘way consequential'” (Economist).
  • During a recent Oval Office briefing, Bush mentioned “several times” that Fed Chair Ben Bernanke was wearing mis-matched “light-tan socks,” which he bought “at the Gap — three pairs for seven dollars” (“Daily Intel“).
