Apparently, the Chandra Levy series is doing well online. What journalist “wishes Bill Gertz Godspeed today”? Three years ago, Lance Armstrong won his seventh Tour de France. It’s the birthday of Pat Oliphant, Charlie Crist and Claire McCaskill. The guy Novak hit was an Obama supporter, apparently.

Today’s “Angry Journalist” rant of the day: “I graduated with a journalism degree from one of the top three j-schools in the country. I worked at the school paper, won awards and even bought a nice frame to hang my diploma in. Now I feel like burning it … studying journalist was a waste and now I’m on meds to keep from thinking about how I wasted a good education on pipe dreams of the first amendment. I hate journalism schools — they just send cattle to the slaughter house.” Check out today’s White House Photo of the Day from Time.
