Happy July! Can’t wait for the 4th so those darn kids will stop setting of fireworks underneath my window. Grrr. Get off my stoop! Anyway, here are the Blue Marblish stories from our other blogs you might have missed. Enjoy.

Coaling Down: Coal-state Dems voted against the climate bill, but not as many as you’d think.

Lobbyist Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan: Kazakh government is paying Hill firm in attempt to repudiate their Borat image as anti-Semitic, prostitute-loving, horse-urine drinkers.
