U.S.: A bunch of news happened today; here’s our lame catchup attempt

  • first A Virginia judge ruled that a key provision of the health-care bill – forcing people to get insured – was unconstitutional. Great news for America.
  • then The Senate voted to allow the great Obama tax compromise of 2010, to reach a final vote. It was a very easy vote, too – 83 yes, 15 no.
  • now Richard Holbrooke, a top diplomat for numerous presidents (including Obama), just died after he tore his aorta a few days ago. Sad.
