House Speaker John Boehner can put his plans for a select committee to investigate the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks in Benghazi on hold. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has gotten to the bottom of the scandal:

It’s the Koch brothers’ fault.

Reid: “Republicans are showing yet again that they have nothing to offer the middle class. Republicans care more about defending billionaires like the Koch brothers and trying to rekindle debunked right-wing conspiracy theories than raising the minimum wage or ensuring women receive equal pay for equal work.

A smiling face
A swaying waist
Light on her feet
She’s something I want to keep

Someone like you
and someone like me
But what do I say?
Who should I be?

It’s been months
It’s been years
I’ve seen you through 
Smiles and tears

A smiling face
A swaying waist
Light on her feet
She’s something I want to keep

Someone like me
Someone like you
I don’t know …
what I should do

It’s been months
It’s been years
We’ve had smiles
and we’ve had tears

Oh, a smiling face
and a swinging waist
Light on her feet
She’s something I want to keep.

Originally posted on TechCrunch:

Today is a day of celebration: It’s Star Wars Day, and that means on onslaught of Star Wars-themed gadgets – like these special edition STREET by 50 headphones I got to test out, which feature the badging of the greatest freedom movement the galaxy has ever borne witness to. But do they honor the Alliance Starbird and all that it stands for, or do they fall flat?

Basics

Pros

  • Very comfortable leather cups

Cons

  • Pricey for limited noise cancellation and no Bluetooth
