* NYC's maple-syrup smell mystery resolved! It was New Jersey. (Really!)
* The AP lacks a basic understanding of fair use. More at MeFi.
* Raccoons have invaded the White House. Sadly the Secret Service has only trained for nighttime raccoon assault.
* How Obama is screwing up the stimulus: failure to counteract zombie Republican lies. More on this from Steve Benen.

* Also: Judd Gregg still sucks.
* Climate Progress now has one-stop anti-nuclear shopping.
* The nonprofit industrial complex.
* How various songs react to Ze Frank's voice-activated drawing applications.
