In the aftermath of the financial crisis, traditional wisdom about stocks is being challenged.
South Carolina lawmakers plan to formally consider impeaching Governor Mark Sanford for the first time next week, the chairman of the committee beginning that work said Friday.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Harrison told The Associated Press he is appointing an ad-hoc committee of four Republicans and three Democrats who will begin meeting Tuesday. He said he expects to have a resolution to impeach ready before Christmas for the full Judiciary Committee to consider.

Even less surprising is the claim that there is little management experience within the fractured group.
It all sounded so dreamy to the deluded just a few short months ago.
Disagreements over those issues have spawned personal and institutional rivalries, at least one highly contentious lawsuit and — perhaps most significantly — resulted in the splintering of local, regional and national groups into a patchwork of hundreds of smaller groups that occasionally seem to be working at cross-purposes.
“These groups don’t play as well together as they should,” said Kevin Jackson, a St. Louis-based conservative author and activist who has spoken at dozens of tea party-type rallies and is traveling across the South with a convoy sponsored by the national Tea Party Patriots group.
“They’re fractured at the organization level, I think mainly because there are a lot of people who have not had managerial experience who all of a sudden are thrust into the limelight and become intoxicated with it. And when a potential rift comes up, instead of handling it and maybe agreeing to disagree, they splinter and go off on their own.”
Above is the world's first photograph of a baby coelacanth, recently taken by Japanese researchers off Indonesia's Sulawesi Island.
A cryptozoology favorite, coelacanths were thought to have been extinct for 65 million years until one was found alive in 1938.

The geniuses who wrote Texas’ gay marriage ban may have banned all marriage in the state, according to one Houston lawyer.
Subsection B of the ban, a constitutional amendment ratified in 2005, states, “This state…may not create or recognize any legal status identical or similar to marriage.”
The intent was to prevent even civil unions for gay couples—but it doesn’t actually specify the “gay” part. The wording essentially “eliminates marriage in Texas,” Barbara Ann Radnofsky, the Democratic candidate for state attorney general tells the McClatchy Papers. “You do not have to have a fancy law degree to read this and understand what it plainly says.”
Wingnuts scoffed at Radnofsky’s tactics. “It’s a silly argument,” said the head of an 'organization' that helped draft the amendment. A lawsuit based on it would have “about one chance in a trillion” of succeeding.
Drivers in North Carolina who cover parts of their license plates could face tickets and fines under a new state law that goes into effect next month.
The law, passed by the N.C. legislature this year, requires that the state's name, year and month registration stickers be fully visible. Previously, they could be partially covered by license plate frames.
The measure was supported by law enforcement officials, who say it will make reading registration information and identifying vehicles easier in North Carolina.
Starting Dec. 1, drivers can be cited for an infraction if they cover the state name or registration stickers
Fines don't kick in until Dec. 2010, when the citations will start carrying a $100 penalty.

It hasn't gone anywhere -- that undeniable urge to let the world know exactly what you think about anything and everything.
Of course, why you'd even try is a mystery.
Your judgment is sounder and more practical than any other dozen people combined, so why keep it a secret?
It can only do everyone around you good to hear your opinions, as solid and unbiased as they are.
So start talking!
