Here’s what the Loop is reading today:

Congress goes postal — Who says Congress can’t tackle the tough issues? A new analysis finds that an astonishing “15 percent of all bills passed and signed into law in the last five congresses named a post office.”

Nomination snag — So much for moving quickly on nominations. Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.) wants to wait to take action on the nomination of John Brennan to be CIA director until the Obama administration gives Congress the answers he’s been seeking on the terrorist attacks in Libya.

Inauguration soundtrack — Obama bestie Beyonce is among the big names performing at the inaugural concert. And poet Richard Blanco (who unlike Blue Ivy’s mom, you won’t read about in every issue of US Weekly) will read at the swearing-in ceremony.
