The Helena (MT) Independent Record has disciplined a copy editor for changing a line in an Associated Press story to read, “Obama was allegedly born in Hawaii.”
- Ah, the Catholic Church—where supporting women's ordination is a sin that will get you excommunicated, but raping kids is a real gray area.

- Offered without comment:
Chimpanzees going through a midlife crisis? It sounds like a setup for a joke.
But there it is, in the title of a report published Monday in a scientific journal: “Evidence for a midlife crisis in great apes.”
Former U.S. Sen. Warren Rudman, co-author of the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings deficit reduction act and a key backer of fellow Granite Stater David Souter's being named to the U.S. Supreme Court, has died. He was 82. He died overnight, having been in declining health for some time.
- This news is not very Smurfy:
Lucille Bliss, the personality-filled voice behind the iconic little blue lady marshmallow of Smurfiness, died at age 96 on Nov. 8 in Costa Mesa, Calif.
- A Thanksgiving week blogathon in support of the fourth annual Kossack-organized fund raiser to provide propane and portable heaters to the low-income communities living on South Dakota Indian reservations is in its second day of a run that will last through Sunday. The propane project, initiated by navajo and the Native American Netroots in the winter of 2009-2010 in the midst of a devastating ice storm, raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in assistance thanks to a mention by Keith Olbermann, then on MSNBC's Countdown. Since then, thousands of dollars have been raised each winter. Money is being sought specifically for the Pine Ridge and Rosebud Indian seservations, both of which border Nebraska in south-central South Dakota. Unfortunately, the problem is exacerbated by the policies of the state and federal governments and the failure of many mainstream charities to pay attention to Indian needs. Among the obstacles is theunderfunded Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), a program that supplies enough money for three to four weeks of assistance for an often brutal winter season that runs three to four months. For the Rosebud, the organizers of the fund-raising drive have developed a relationship with an Indian-owned propane company whose owners know who most needs assistance and can make deliveries within a day of receiving money. You can watch for posts starting that include "propane project" in the headline or read about the fund raiser and how to contribute here.
- On today's Kagro in the Morning show, Greg Dworkin stopped by to discuss the impact of the competing schools of Republican Crazy that threaten to pull their already shrinking coalition apart. Then, we reviewed a lost gem of the Internet: a 2001 Heritage Foundation analysis of the Bush tax cuts, which predicted the elimination of the national debt by 2010! It didn't work, but probably only because they weren't conservative enough, or something like that. Finally, a look at the Hostess situation, reading the excellent diary by bluebarnstormer.
