Brian writes monologue jokes every day. “This is one of those days,” to misquote Fred Durst. You can find more at http://brianunderstands.tumblr.com and tell him he’s a muffin on Twitter @BrianLisi. Thank you.

The New York City Housing Authority has nearly $1 billion in federal funding it has yet to spend on housing developments. A real challenge in an era where no one is homeless.

In Texas, Tea Party-backed candidate Ted Cruz won the Republican primary for U.S. Senate. Supporters say they can't wait to see all the work he refuses to do.

Microsoft is rebranding their Hotmail email service. Current users will have their old @hotmail.com accounts automatically transferred to @iamagrandparentoravoidingyou.com accounts.

The nonpartisan Tax Policy Center concluded that Mitt Romney's tax plan would "provide large tax cuts to high-income households, and increase the tax burdens on middle- and/or lower-income taxpayers." Too bad Obama's a Islam.
