Mediaite has an interview with CNN reporter Jim Acosta, who was asked to leave Sarah Palin’s book signing when he asked her a question about her possible presidential run.

On Geekosystem: an absolutely fascinating time lapse video, in which a young girl, Natalie, ages from an infant to 10 years old in about a minute and a half. Natalie’s family was able to do this by taking her picture almost every day since birth. While it must have been annoying to have to pose for a photo every day, it’s paid off with some viral video fame! (Worth it.) See it here.
