Morning Reading List 09.02.09

Good morning FishbowlDC! Got a blind item, interesting link, funny note, comment, birthday, anniversary or anything of the sort for Morning Reading List? Drop us a line.

Enjoy some commentary we’ve gotten so far on FishbookDC’s Superlatives (have you voted??) and guess who these comments are in reference to… “I hope when I’m 56 yrs old ppl think I’m cool enough to ‘most likely be a headline'” and “People are still talking about her poker rage- it’s like they don’t want to come unless they know she’s there.”

What know and what we’re reading this Wednesday morning…
