Thanks this morning to ChrisM, my MP3Angel, for supplying the commentary audio file.

A nuclear scientist in the Russian weapons program who was spying for the CIA (Igor V. Sutyagin) has been moved to Moscow and told he needs to get ready to be extradited in a spy swap for ... members of the 'Suburban Spy Ring'. He's NOT pleased, considering that he pled, and still maintains, that he's innocent.

A "Don't Ask Don't Tell" survey of 4,000 U.S. troops is going to be conducted by the Pentagon in the run up to a new set of rules. Marines and sailors at bases in Southern California have already received theirs eve as many Gay advocacy groups are requesting non-cooperation with the survey saying
"There is no guarantee of privacy and (the Pentagon) has not agreed to provide immunity to service members whose privacy may be inadvertently violated or who inadvertently outs himself or herself," said Aubrey Sarvis, the group's executive director. "If a service member still wishes to participate, he or she should only do so in a manner that does not reveal sexual orientation." [In Full]

President Obama has recess appointed Doctor Don Berwick as the Medicare and Medicaid Services administrator. The position has been vacant since 2006. Doctor Berwick is in favor of single payer insurance and other Republican despised medical care concepts. The president also used the same appointment technique for Philip Coyle as National Security and International Affairs Associate director and Joshua Gotbaum as Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp director.

The President will be campaigning for Senatorial candidates in Kansas City and Las Vegas today. His pitch in what should be major speeches may have the tenor "Look at the Republicans, what they do and who they are". He'll be in California campaigning for Barbara Boxer tomorrow.

ONLY 454,000 Americans lost their jobs against an expectation of 460,00 as the benefits run out for millions of Americans due to Republican tantrums about how lazy people on unemployment become after extended periods of assistance, and others who managed to find work are saying "Do you want fires with that?". See economist Dean Baker's "Republicans: a party of unemployment". Also see "What the Unemployed Do With Their Time (Or: Economists Can Know So Much and Still Not Get It)" at Alternet, and this, from Dimitry Orlov:

Products and Services for the Permanently Unemployed Consumer

Developing and marketing products for a shrinking market poses an interesting set of challenges. Even if a company does an outstanding job and is able to steadily grow its market share, these gains are negated if the market itself continually shrinks by an ever larger amount. For instance, a company might have an outstanding electric vehicle design, but it is destined to fall by the wayside during a time when the number of consumers that qualify for a car loan is trending downward, the used car market is glutted by repossessions, and federal, state and municipal governments are unable to upgrade their car fleets because their budgets are far in the red.

Consumer product development caters to individuals who live in houses or condos, have jobs to which they commute by car, and generate a steady stream of disposable income. This is the group to which the business press often refers collectively as "the consumer": one often reads that the consumer is retrenching, that the consumer's credit is tapped out, that the consumer's disposable income is shrinking and so on. The consumer is not growing. What is there left to do except design and manufacture fewer and fewer products?
