* Avatar sequel hints. Everything that was cut from Avatar. Vatican says Avatar is no masterpiece.

* James Cameron’s Spider-Man.

* io9 teases me with the possibility that Wes Anderson could direct the Spider-Man reboot but says it will actually be (500) Days of Summer‘s Marc Webb. /Film says this rumor is already outdated and today’s favorite is the even-less-well known Nimrod Antal.

* Christopher Nolan talks Inception.

* Obama has officially bought the world an extra minute.

* Details emerging about the new David Simon show, Treme.

* Denmark, the awesomest economy.

* ‘System Failure’: Obama’s first year.

* Here comes the bank tax.

* Here comes the climate bill.

* Haven’t blogged about health care in a while, but the Democrats apparently struck a deal with labor today over the excise tax. The White House is also pushing a new exchanges agreement as a nose-in-the-tent that might partially compensate for the loss of the public option and the Medicare buy-in: “Over time, the exchanges will open to more and more people.”
