A new "national unity government" is expected to be announced today in Tunisia—that is if they can get past all the gun battles and famine first.

INTRIGUING (as CNN likes to say): Did Wikileaks spur the Tunisian uprising?

ALSO INTRIGUING: An ex-Swiss banker contends he gave Wikileaks info on 2000 prominent individuals who have engaged in tax evasion or criminal activity. JESUS! If you can't trust your Swiss banker, who can you trust??

Martin Luther King III
is expected to raise the subject of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in his speech today commemorating his father.
