Blizzard of 2009 Photos

Photos from midday....when we still just had a taste of it. I'm pretty sure we now have about 9 feet of snow. Don't listen to reports saying there are 15 or 18 inches. It's more like 80 or 90...

The blizzard of '09

Time 'Person of the Year': good call

Good call! Ben Bernanke may not be a snazzy choice, but he's a smart one. I hate it when Time gets too cute with this annual tradition and decides to pick some reviled foreign despot (just to infuriate the...

Christmas at the White House
