* It’s been fifty years since the Greensboro Sit-Ins. Appropriate the city’s Civil Rights Museum, long vaporware, finally opened today.

* Bill Watterson has given his first interview since 1989. The grown-up Calvin & Hobbes post is still, by a good bit, my most popular post ever; there are, of course, many others.

* At right: The Ultimate Graphic Novel. Via SEK.

* Arrested Development with a laugh track. Bad, bad. Via that notorious AD fan, @drbluman.

* Defense as percent of GDP. Related: Visualizing Obama’s 2011 budget.

* Polling proves there are only five Republican states. Five too many, naturally.

* More Obama counternarrative: John Judis on rebuilding the federal bureaucracy. Kim Stanley Robinson hit this note more than once during his campus visit last week. (more on this in a bit).

* Counter-counternarrative: Obama’s new nuke push is a bad idea.
