THURSDAY ON THE LINKS
Marks and Lennon: In a totally bizarre case, the FBI, which once tormented John Lennon, now seizes his fingerprints—before auction. With quotes from our own Jon Wiener.

NOTE: I am hosting the FireDogLake chat with Woodward today at 3 pm ET.
Mario Vargas Llosa wins Nobel Prize for Literature…
Andy Borowitz: "Hillary to Become VP—Biden Named President of Afghanistan—Karzai Traded to Vikings." I guess that means Randy Moss gets Elizabeth Warren’s job.
TV TONITE HBO film tonight at 9 on Springsteen and the making of "Darkness on the Edge of Town."… Possibly a fun "30 Rock" tonight as Alec Baldwin testifies before Congress and versus Rep. Queen Latifah.
