Human embryonic stem cell
>> Scientists have injected stem cells into a spinal cord injury patient in Atlanta on Friday, marking the world's first human stem-cell treatment. Religious right: Waiting for that natural disaster to come from saving this man's life? (the LA Times)

>> Forty states' attorney generals will announce an investigation into the mortgage racket today, coming nearly a week after Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac told banks they had to deal with losses resulting from foreclosures. Bank of America froze all foreclosures last Friday, but not before putting out families from their homes without all the proper information. (the Wall Street Journal)

>> It seems Democrats have abandoned their scare tactic of connecting conservatives' midterm election campaigns to illegally obtained foreign donors. There was little proof that what the Chamber of Commerce was doing was illegal, and Obama didn't bring it up in his Miami appearance last night. Hmm....what scare tactic to bring out next... (AP)

>> Four Staten Island high school students have been arrested for harassing a fellow student for being gay and Muslim. Bullies: it gets worse. (NY Daily News, Buzzfeed)

>> And finally: The Secret Service has determined that the book thrower at the Obama rally in Philadelphia this weekend was just an "over exuberant person who wrote a book that he wanted the president to read." Bob Woodward, we all know your new book is out. Give it a break. (CNN)
