Another day of heavy traffic for the poor slobs driving in and out of DC: a derailed freight train caused closure of some passenger service, adding to the fun today.

Today’s linkage:

  • Venomous Kate is recovering but won’t be back to regular blogging until the New Year.
  • Meryl Yourish got a free trinket for enduring a 12 hour movie marathon.
  • Jerry Scharf reports the Russians doing something helpful.
  • Kevin Aylward is among many commenting on Michael Jackson’s conversion to Islam.
  • Steven Taylor reports that the Flu has now achieved an Electoral College majority.
