  • CIA Director Leon Panetta unveiled his newest staffer at Friday's office holiday party: Bravo, his Irish Setter. Bravo "is an important member of the Panetta family," a source "close to Panetta" told our SpyTalk colleague Jeff Stein. The dog, formerly a regular at the Panetta Institute, made "quick friends" with CIA officials during his first week at Langley. So far, no leaks of any kind, said the proud source: "He's well trained in the art of discretion." (Read more at SpyTalk.)

  • Wayne State University will no longer present its Helen Thomas Spirit of Diversity Award after she made what it called "anti-Semitic" remarks at a Detroit conference Thursday. To wit: The vet­eran journalist declared that "Congress, the White House and Hollywood, Wall Street are owned by the Zionists. No question, in my opinion," reports the Detroitt Free Press. Interim dean Matthew Seeger said the controversy around the famous alum "is no longer helping us achieve our goals."
