Congress is set to take on Obama’s jobs bill, but it probably won’t pass as is. Meanwhile, Slovakia voted against contributing to Europe’s financial rescue plan. The NBA has officially canceled the first two weeks of the regular season. A study has found that taking multivitamins may increase a risk of death for older women. We heard about housing economic indicators, and about photographer Kevin Bauman’s series on abandoned houses in Detroit. And the Chinese matchmaking industry is booming. Here are the songs we played:

  • Paper Planes (DFA Remix) – M.I.A.Buy
  • When Will You Come Home – Galaxie 500Buy
