"Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid threatened to bring the Senate to a halt if Republicans try to change the chamber's rules to prevent the minority party from blocking President George W. Bush's judicial nominees."
"Reid, a Nevada Democrat, said during a news conference at the Capitol that he would 'rather dance than fight' with Republican leaders. He said changing rules that the Senate has followed for two centuries would represent an 'arrogant abuse of power.' ''
"During Bush's first term in office, the Senate confirmed 204 judicial nominees and Democrats blocked votes on 10 -- a confirmation rate of over 95 percent."
"Bush renominated seven of those 10; two received recess appointments -- requiring that the Senate eventually review their nominations again. A third, Washington lawyer Miguel Estrada, formally withdrew his nomination."

- Surprising Effects of Global Warming (MSNBC News)
"You’ve probably heard about the global warming song and dance: rising temperatures, melting ice caps and rising sea levels in the near future. But Earth’s changing climate is already wreaking havoc in some very weird ways. So gird yourself for such strange effects as savage wildfires, disappearing lakes, and freak allergies." 01-07
- Editorial: Self-Promoting Values and a Sham (New York Times)
"But despite Rudy’s fleeting stabs at fudging his views, they are well known now, and still he leads in national polls of Republican voters and is neck and neck with Fred Thompson in the Bible Belt sanctuary of South Carolina."
"But the most obvious explanation is the one that Washington resists because it contradicts the city’s long-running story line. Namely, that the political clout ritualistically ascribed to Mr. Perkins, James Dobson of Focus on the Family, Gary Bauer of American Values and their ilk is a sham."
"These self-promoting values hacks don’t speak for the American mainstream. They don’t speak for the Republican Party. They no longer speak for many evangelical ministers and their flocks. The emperors of morality have in fact had no clothes for some time. Should Rudy Giuliani end up doing a victory dance at the Republican convention, it will be on their graves." 10-07
- Editorial: The Meaning of Obama's Win (Time.com)
"Remember this day, parents told their children as they took them out of school to go see an African-American candidate make history.

- Patrick Swayze Dies at 57 (RottenTomatoes.com)
"Patrick Swayze, the versatile actor who starred in some of the biggest Hollywood hits of the late 1980s and early 1990s, died Sept. 14 after a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 57."
"Swayze's big break was in Francis Ford Coppola's The Outsiders (which was also a springboard for the likes of Tom Cruise, Emilio Estevez, Matt Dilion, and Diane Lane, among others). As a lead, Swayze found success in the Cold War action flick Red Dawn and the ABC Civil War miniseries North and South." "
"However, it was the sleeper hit Dirty Dancing that propelled Swayze to the big time. Playing Johnny Castle, a blue collar dance instructor at a swanky Catskills hotel, Swayze proved himself to be a credible romantic lead; he also showed off some spiffy dance moves -- his mother Patsy is a choreographer -- and sang a song on the film's hit soundtrack, 'She's Like the Wind.' Swayze followed that commercial triumph with Road House, playing a philosophical bouncer; Ghost, as a dead man attempting to protect his girlfriend from harm; and Point Break, in which he lead a gang of bank-robbing surfers." Visitors sometimes misspell as Swaze, Swazi, or Swazy. 09-09

- Crowd Accelerated Innovation (CNN News and TED)
"Hidden among all the cute kittens and pirated TV shows, online video is driving astonishing innovation in thousands of different fields ranging from the ultra-niche to the sharing of truly world-changing ideas."
"In my TED talk, just posted, I point to numerous examples of this innovation, such as the dance revolution exemplified by a dance troupe called the LXD who played the Oscars this year. And I coin a term for it: crowd-accelerated innovation."
"The term is new, but the process is old. Actually, this is pretty much the only type of innovation there has ever been. Contrary to the romantic myth, innovation doesn't suddenly emerge from lone geniuses and their eureka moments. It emerges when groups of people spark off each other. In history, progress took off when people came together in cities, and the scientific revolution took off when people around the world could read about each others' discoveries in print." 09-10
- Houston, Whitney, Remembered by her Daughter (ABC News)

- Stonehenge Had Unique Acoustics (MSNBC News)
"Stonehenge was built as a dance arena for prehistoric "samba-style" raves, according to a study of the acoustics of the 5,000-year-old stone circle."
"Watson's research strongly suggested that the monument's builders knew how to direct the movement of sound. Indeed, the stones at Stonehenge amplify higher-frequency sounds, such as the human voice, while lower-frequency sounds such as drums pass around the stones and can be heard for some distance."
"The effect would have been a 'dynamic multisensory experiences,' according to Watson." 01-09
