Two notable pieces of news from other planets:

First, it looks like there was, in fact, water on Mars, possibly in abundance.

Second, Dick Cheney on the current administration’s economic record, as quoted in Talking Points Memo: “If the Democratic policies had been pursued over the last two or three years, the kind of tax increases that both Kerry and Edwards have talked about, we would not have had the kind of job growth that we’ve had].” Huh?

Apparently there’s very robust job growth in the “undisclosed location.”
