>> Justice John Paul Stevens announced his retirement after serving for 34 years. The 89-year-old was expected to hold off until oral arguments end this month, but Obama needed a head-start in finding the perfect Commie replacement. (the LA Times)

>> Threats against Congress members have increased threefold due to the healthcare bill passing. That or due to the "Jersey Shore" being off-air. (the Washington Post)

>> The FDA reports that there are "valid concerns" over the effects of triclosan, an antibacterial chemical found in soaps, sanitizers, shaving gels, workout clothes and toys. How ubiquitous is this chemical which could create resistant bacteria? It's found in 75 percent of the population's urine. (the Washington Post)

>> Amnesty International released a report today saying New Orleans demographics have been "permanently altered" by failing to rebuild infrastructure after Katrina and that police brutally was rampant. Brad Pitt, do something! (AP)

>> And finally: Iran unveiled today a "third-generation" uranium centrifuge, separating nuclear power six times as fast as before. Slow nuclear centrifuging is such a pain when you're trying to make weapons ...err, fuel. (BBC)
