Odds and Ends

How's your Monday going? Good, good. Here's some of the news flying under the radar...

I know this shouldn't have come as a surprise, but it appears some House Democrats are having second thoughts about lobbying reform: "The growing resistance to several proposed reforms now threatens passage of a bill that once seemed on track to fulfill Democrats' campaign promise of cleaner fundraising and lobbying practices."

I am all for any media outlet putting a spotlight on this story, to force Democrats into the light on this issue. The last thing we want after all this is a Democratic K Street Project.

Gas prices set a new record...

...While April's Supreme Court ruling forces Pres. Bush to plan greenhouse gas regulation.

Man, what won't we outsource these days? The editor of a local California news site is looking to hire someone based in India to help in their reporting. Next up? CNN outsources Lou Dobbs' job, Lou Dobbs burns down CNN.

The trial of 'dirty bomber' Jose Padilla finally begins.

Finally, silly speculation about what Sen. Chuck Hagel will do in '08 runs rampant.
