Morning Newsdome: Get to executing before your sodium thiopental runs out!

>> California executed convicted rapist Albert G. Brown Jr., the first execution in the state in more than four years, on Thursday night, a few hours before California's supply of sodium thiopental was set to expire today. A panel of three judges found that the process "might be driven by the expiration date of the execution drug." I always take pills in my medicine cabinet after they expire, and I'm still kickin'. (the New York Times)

>> The number of men and women over 18 years old who are married fell from 57 percent in 2000 to 52 percent in 2009, the lowest percentage in over 100 years. Experts point to a lack of money for a wedding and home, and the accepted behavior of living with partners out of wedlock. But I think we all know the real culprit: gay marriage. (the New York Times)

>> American women voters have gone from "soccer moms" in the Clinton era to "security moms" in the Bush years, and now have been labeled "weary working moms" by NPR for the rising number of women "carrying economic burdens for their families." The biggest impact this target group may have on the upcoming election will probably be staying home, asking their husbands to rub their feet. (NPR)

>> Germany will pay $84 million this weekend, the final reparations from WWI. I usually just screen all my calls when I'm being solicited for money. (the Telegraph)

>> And finally: President Obama talked to Rolling Stone (you know, Pitchfork before the Internet) about what's on his iPod and revealed he's become a Nas and Lil' Wayne fan. He also added, "Malia and Sasha are now getting old enough to where they start hipping me to things." Hipping. Enough said. (Rolling Stone)
