P.M. Ticker: Speechwriters on State of the Union | Glenn’s new producer | Harper’s editor steps down | Do the philathropic thing

[Editor's note: There are many stories we want to share with you, but by their nature are not quite fit for a full PRNewser post and also not something we want to relegate to just our Twitter feed. For that reason, we've decided to add a "P.M." Ticker in addition to our morning link round up. We hope you enjoy it.]
