GOOD MORNING, BLOGTOWN! If your game is on, give me a call, boo... if your love is strong, I'll give it all to you. LET'S GO TO PRESS.

Obama sticks with his "toughen up" strategy, telling Congress he'll veto any deficit plan that doesn't include taxing the super rich.

Soldiers join the protesters
in Yemen, meaning their battle against pro-government forces just got a little uglier, killing 23 people in the latest skirmish.

A 6.9 quake rocks Nepal, killing 38.

70 people were injured and ten reported dead
in Reno this weekend when a plane crashed into the grandstand at an air show gone wrong. (NOTE: I can understand earthquakes and violent political uprisings taking lives—but I'm pretty sure there's an easy way to prevent "air show" deaths.)

Netflix continues it's own metaphorical crash into the grandstands, renaming it's DVD and videogame mail delivery service "Quikster." (I hope the Qwik Bunny sues their ass off.)

Frenchy Dominique Strauss-Kahn takes to the airwaves to issue a "contrived, staged" apology for this "sexual liaison" (read: attempted attack) with a New York hotel maid.

Modern Family kills it at the Emmy's taking home five statuettes (including Best Comedy) while Mad Men again won Best Drama. Unfortunately, once again, Toddlers & Tiaras did not even place. You are a fucking unfair world, world.

Now here's what's going on in your neck of the woods: After a cloudy, cool weekend, things are gonna once again be heating up with temps rising to the low-80s by mid-week.

And finally, what happens when you give "Legend of Zelda" a Lady Gaga soundtrack? AWESOME THINGS.
