Morning Brew for 12/4

I did not get a chance to watch the new MTV series, Jersey Shore last night. But don't you worry, I will be sure to catch the 2-hour premier via my DVR sometime over the weekend. Anyway, onto the real stories of the day.

-The Director of the United States Secret Service, Mark Sullivan, appeared in a house hearing yesterday on Capital Hill to discuss the mistakes the Secret Service made in allowing Tareq, and Michaele Salahi to crash President Obama's first State Dinner last week at the White House. During the hearing Sullivan admitted that the Secret Service made a mistake. He also mentioned that he was relieved that no lives were lost as a result of their mistake. No kidding? Good work Mr. Sullivan!

-Speaking of the Salahi's, I posted a link to this article from the Washington Post yesterday on our Twitter Account, which mentions how Michaele faked her way into a Washington Redskins Cheerleader position. I don't know if this story can get any better.

-In honor of the new George Clooney movie, Up In The Air, USA Today has an in-depth feature on big spending frequent fliers and the treatment they receive from airlines. I don't know why this is so fascinating to me, but for some reason it is. For any of you out there who are close to reaching a certain milestone in your frequent flier program make sure to give this article a glance.

-The United States Jobless Rate has dipped to 10 percent in November. This can only mean good things for a blog dedicated to getting people through their work day, right? I mean you are telling your co-workers about us, aren't you?

That's it for today. Remember you can always e-mail me if you stumble across a link you'd like to share. You will receive full credit. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
