Mardi Gras
Today is Mardi Gras, a day when revellers get drunk and stupid in the streets. And it all wraps up when the drunkest and stupidest gather together at tonight's joint session on Congress.

Government Takeover
A proposal to expand the government's stake in Citigroup is fanning fears about a nationalization of the banks. It's also fanning fears that the feds will replace the concession stands at CitiField with food from the school lunch program.

Union Deal
Ford and the UAW have reached an agreement on retiree healthcare... they're both going to share the same graveyard in about six months.

Iraq Museum Reopens
The Iraq Museum has reopened six years after the site was the scene of massive looting. Now the only blatant ripoffs are taking place in the museum gift shop.

Aid to Gaza
The U.S. is sending $900 million to Gaza. Some of the money will be used to feed children, repair homes, and launch new businesses... and the other $899 million will be used to kill people.
