Funny pages — C-SPAN is probably used to the SNL treatment by now, but this weekend, local favorite Politics and Prose bookstore took a turn on the show, with a skit set at Paula Broadwell’s book reading.

Low marks — Morale problems persist at DHS.

Just passin’ through — A blink-and-you-might-miss-him congressman fills a partial (make that six weeks) term.

Onion headline writes itself — Vice President Joe Biden reassures storm-hit New Jersey-ites that he hung out so much on the Jersey Shore that he’s their “homeboy” in the White House.
