In England, you can no longer hunt foxes with dogs. So instead they're hunting Washington Post editors. No really! Health section editor Frances Stead Sellers tried out the new human-quarry form of hunting that's catching on in the U.K. Problem: Humans just don't smell as good to foxhounds. So they're using bloodhounds instead.

Amazing details about how Gabrielle Giffords was able to open her eyes (yes, a very significant development, doctors say) for the first time when her congresswomen friends came to visit Wednesday. (Update: She's now sitting up and moving her arms and legs.)

TV writers love Conan O'Brien so much that they pulled their cellphone cameras out to record his every utterance at the press tour (Lisa de Moraes says he was "dressed in one of those studiously sloppy outfits designed to suggest 'youth' -- faded jeans, really-ugly zip-up sweater, and a hoodie, under a sort of distressed suit jacket") but honestly, doesn't seem like he said anything very interesting.

White House state dinner for China approaches -- what should you wear?









"He has crinkly eyes, a limpid smile; he looks like John Travolta during a stubbly phase."


-- Monica Hesse on Jimmy Wales, the guy you see on top of Wikipedia pages asking for money. Wikipedia just turned 10.
