Team of scientists believes they’ve discovered the chance meeting that lead to life on earth, and it wasn’t Adam and Eve: “New research finds that an amoeba-like organism engulfed a bacterium that had developed the power to use sunlight to break down water to make oxygen. The bacterium could have been intended as prey, but instead became incorporated into its attacker’s body, transforming it into the ancestor of every tree, flowering plant and seaweed on Earth today.”

Congressman Mike Pence (R-IN) says Republicans should make “sanctity of marriage” the focus of rebuilding the party: “But you build those conservative solutions, Chris, on the same time-honored principles of limited government, a belief in free markets, a belief in the sanctity of life and the sanctity of marriage.”

Melissa Silverstein on Grey’s Anatomy: Why the Firing of Brooke Smith is Bigger Than ABC Wants Us to Think. “The forced statement that Shonda Rhimes released last week mentioned that Smith was not fired because she played a lesbian and that the show still has lesbian on it — Callie Torres — rings false. On the episode, Callie denied she was a lesbian which is what led to Dr. Hahn walking away into TV nowhereland. And her constant on the job sexual exploits with Dr. McSteamy proves her sexual confusion. It’s like she needs to prove she’s not gay. For a show that prides itself on diversity, this doesn’t cut it. So was Smith fired because she is not “pretty enough” to play gay on TV? On mainstream TV girl on girl sex is seen as hot; yet a relationship between two normal looking women is what, scary?”

NY Senate Democrats still at war: “After seeing one of their Gang of Four defect, two renegade Senate Democrats dug in their heels Sunday and threatened to hijack state government by letting a leadership battle drag on for weeks or even months.

Hateful bigot Marilyn Musgrave still hasn’t conceded: “Bitterness generated by the bruising battle between Betsy Markey and Marilyn Musgrave apparently lingers days after voters decided the winner of the 4th Congressional District. Incumbent Republican Musgrave, who lost to Democrat Markey by a 56 to 44 percent margin Tuesday, has yet to call and congratulate Markey on her win. Musgrave also hasn’t conceded the race, said Markey spokesman Ben Marter. “She has yet to admit defeat,” he said. ‘It’s a little bizarre.'”
