Facebook Members
Facebook now has 750 million members. That's 750 million people who can see pictures of you drunk in college.

Anthony Sentencing
Casey Anthony will be sentenced today at 11am. She will either get jail for two more years or be forced to spend an hour with Nancy Grace.

Social Security Cut?
President Obama says he's now willing to make cuts to Social Security in return for tax hikes. So you might have to pay a little more out of your paycheck, but at least there will be a lot fewer old ladies crowding the supermarket.

Jobless Numbers
The weekly jobless report is due out today at 8:30am. But the guys who count up all the newly unemployed are asking that everyone who actually still has a job to just call them... it would be quicker.

1969: In Canada, the Official Languages Act is adopted making the French language equal to the English language… except for people who want to be taken seriously.
