- Today's comic is High Tech Christmas by Mark Fiore:
- Be part of our first War on Christmas fund-raising drive:
We’re closing out the best year of our existence—whether in terms of traffic or actual results. We’ve got insanely great things planned for 2013 and then it’s on to 2014, when we buck history and retire John Boehner. But with changing web economics, we’ll need you more than ever to help fund our efforts.

- Millions live on $2 a day in America. The problem isn't just the safety net, it's the whole economy, by Laura Clawson

- Marriage equality is good for your health:
As the Supreme Court gears up to hear arguments on the legality of same-sex marriage, a new study suggests such unions may boost mental health.
Gay, lesbian, and bisexual people who are married have significantly lower levels of psychological distress when compared to their non-married counterparts, according to a study published today in the American Journal of Public Health.
- Gov. Nikki Haley made a funny:
The Colbert Report Mr. Colbert, clearly a whole lot of people felt you needed a second look for U.S. Senate, and because I believe in doing my full due diligence ... this is what our vetting process came back with: http://goo.gl/...
- George Dubya Bush is still awful:
The next generation of the Bush family will arrive in 2013.
TODAY correspondent Jenna Bush Hager is pregnant with her first child! Bush Hager announced on TODAY Wednesday that she and husband Henry Hager will become parents next year, four years after tying the knot. [...]
Her famous father has made no secret of his desire to be a grandfather, telling AARP magazine in 2010, “I’m a little disappointed it hasn’t happened yet.”
On the phone call Wednesday, Matt Lauer asked the former president what he'd like his new grandchild to call him, as Jenna suggested "Popsicle."
"Sir," he responded.
- This is a really lovely tradition:
At 31, lifetime Yellow Springs resident Ann Miles never knew Wheeling Gaunt or his legacy. But when she suddenly became a widow, the man who died more than 100 years ago became a comfort in her life. [...]
When she got a call that the village’s utility department would deliver flour and sugar to her door, she didn’t know what to think. But she understood what it meant to receive kindness from a stranger — one who’s been offering it for the past 118 years.
The tradition dates back to a deal struck between Gaunt, a former slave, and the village in 1894. He donated 10 acres of farmland to the village on the condition that it deliver flour to all the local widows at Christmastime with rent money collected off the parcel. The land is now Gaunt Park, and while there’s no longer any rent collected, the village still keeps its promise.
- All I want for Christmas is a fiscal cliff coloring book ... said no one. Ever.
- On today's Kagro in the Morning show, the Pew poll shows the Prez up and the Gop down. Our daily dose of filibuster reform, with Jonathan Bernstein's objections to Sen. Merkley's plan, and a great listener phone call from Mike in Pittsburgh, pointing out that "talking filibusters" might make it easier to change the rules next time. Finally, a small government defense of unions. Stop workers from privately ordering affairs with employers through unions, and they'll vote in a government that'll do it for them.
