Morning Coffee (8/14/10)

Morning Coffee

Good morning, and happy V-J Day! It's Saturday. Thank goodness. And the President finally came out in support of the "Ground Zero Mosque" (which is not actually at Ground Zero), so good for him.

Dear Ben Quayle, If your father was vice president, you might want to come up with a different plan to run on than being an "outsider." (I'm totally giving him a pass on the kid thing, though. They're his nieces! That's fine.)

Would you like some production stills from the season two premiere of The Vampire Diaries? Of course you would.

I'm so glad Dave Weigel has a steady job again. Here's his Five Myths About the Tea Party and Crazy Enough to Win.

My boss has suddenly started blogging.

This Slate story about the Japanese economy and percent of adults depending on their parents is fascinating. And scary.

This Julia Roberts death watch piece raised a bunch of interesting points, but mostly left me with the question, "Whatever happened to Meg Ryan?" And then the desire to watch You've Got Mail. (I just consulted IMDb and I'm still wondering what happened to Meg Ryan, as they don't list anything in production or even rumored for her, and that's practically unheard of for major names.)

Gail Collins is wonderful, as usual, on the legislative maneuverings involved in getting women the vote.

Wikipedia says that Meg Ryan adopted a baby in 2006 and that she has a teenage son. Maybe she decided to take some time off to spend with the kids while she finds some new roles

Oh god, there's ANOTHER Quayle?
