Slow News Day 

I don't know why, but today just feels like a slow news day. Alito was confirmed and just sworn in, the President is prepping for the State of the Union address, and yet none of that seems like a big deal. Alito being confirmed isn't nearly as big news-wise as the battle to get him to there, and I have a hard time sitting through a manufactured speech full of dumbed down politics, and presidential promises for things the federal government has no business promising, and no ability to actually follow through on well.

Iran is threatening to halt U.N. inspections, but we already know what they have, what they want to do... so it's not like that is really news worthy either. The media is salivating over another milestone, reporting that the 100th British soldier has died in Iraq. At least they're not partying it up as big as when the 2000th overall was killed. I wonder what the British media is doing with it?

There's a lot going on, yet it still somehow just feels so slow.
