A quick round up of quick MoJo reads:

Those meddling kids at the State department asked Twitter to postpone the Fail Whale's Tehran cameo; Wall Street breathed a sigh of relief; and this week's adorably endangered animal is the Hawaiian monk seal.

Meanwhile, Blackwater lost a federal-issue fryer (and $55 million), health care reform is feeling a bit faint, and Chastity Bono's sex change = shrug.

And the question of the day: Are there any senators whose Tweets aren't cringeworthy? This guy, not so much.
