Oh, Tuesday, you're so good to me. Some news to get you started:

The Administration of the first post-racial president sure has race on its mind a lot. Part of last week's Friday afternoon document dump was these two documents, one from the Department of Justice (PDF) and one from the Department of Education (PDF), reestablishing race-based admissions policies in higher education. You will recall that the Supreme Court largely smacked down affirmative action in higher education during the Bush 43 years. The Obama Administration isn't much interested in that.

Speaking of race-based admissions, the sentencing hearing starts today for former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, who was convicted of corruption related to the attempted sale of the President's old Senate seat to Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.
