A lot of "who cares" on the NYT review of Michelle Obama's dress, but barely promoted on our home page, and it's the 2nd most read article

This says so many things about the world in which we live.
An hour into today's rally for Democratic candidates, and two-thirds of the gymnasium at Canyon Springs High School is full. Representatives Dina Titus and Shelley Berkley have each gotten up and announced that we are in attendance at not just a Michelle Obama appearance but also we are at the "largest phonebank in the history of the world!!!" They also suggested we take out our "cellulars to call someone so we can be the largest phonebank ever!!!"
Silvio Berlusconi, addressing supporters this weekend at a rally in Milan, told a very funny joke! Mr Berlusconi told supporters of his People of Freedom party that his government had scored a number of successes since being elected last year, claiming that he had acted swiftly to tackle the effects of the global economic crisis and ensure that Italy had a more solid banking system than many other countries.
"And we have introduced a new element into Italian politics: morality," said Mr Berlusconi, whose estranged wife, Veronica Lario, 53, has suggested that he is obsessed with chasing glamorous actresses and showgirls young enough to be his grand daughters.
There is way too much going on in this picture of Nancy Reagan visiting with Michelle Obama at the White House, so I'll just put it up here. I mean, Jesus, who would have etc.? As a brilliant Russian philosopher once said, "What a country."
