Short Takes

Tax ‘Em Back — Congress moves to tax the hell out of those A.I.G. bonuses.

Hot Seat — A.I.G. CEO Edward Liddy testifies before Congress today. Stand by for some high-level outrage and posturing from both sides. And finger-pointing…mustn’t forget that.

Former President Bush refuses to criticize President Obama. He leaves that up to Dick Cheney.

Bush v. Gore II — Norm Coleman may use that as precedent if he loses the recount in Minnesota

Natasha Richardson is in serious condition in NY hospital after skiing accident in Quebec.

Rolling On
— Rolls-Royce sales remain steady in spite of the economy.

Tigers Tied — 1 to 1 against the Astros in ten innings. You can do that in spring training. 19 days to go to opening day.
