>> Virginia executed the first woman in five years in the U.S. yesterday. Teresa Lewis, 41, was given a lethal injection last night after pleading guilty to plotting to kill her husband and stepson, despite more than 7,300 appeals to stop the execution. The gender divide is closing! (CNN)

>> President Obama spoke to the U.N. yesterday and proposed that next year, "we can have an agreement that will lead to a new member of the United Nations—an independent state of Palestine, living in peace with Israel." Way to break the news, Obama, while the Israeli delegation was home celebrating Sukkot. (the Wall Street Journal)

>> The U.S. delegation walked out of Iranian President Ahmadinejad's U.N. speech after he said that 9/11 was an inside job. He'd make a great Republican senator. (Yahoo! News)

>> House Republicans unveiled "A Pledge to America" yesterday at a lumber warehouse 30 miles from Washington with "plans to create jobs, cut spending and put power where it belongs," though even conservative critics are underwhelmed. I wonder how long it took them to come up with such novel ideas. (Time)

>> And finally: Stephen Colbert of "The Colbert Report" will testify before the House subcommittee on immigration after working on a farm for a day as part of a challenge from a pro-immigrant labor group's "Take Our Jobs" campaign. Well if anyone has the authority to speak on tough issues, it's a comedian who did a job for one day in front of cameras. (CNN)
