Italy’s borrowing rates climb over 7 percent, and it looks increasingly likely that a technocratic government might need to step in at the end of Silvio Berlusconi’s leadership. Italy is also facing another crisis: a shortage of white truffles. A Senate panel looks at the best way to improve transportation infrastructure in the U.S., and the FCC will announce a deal to bring low-cost computers and Internet connections to low-income households.

And here are the songs we played today:

  • Whatever You Like – TIBuy
  • Real Scared – CopyBuy
  • Tin Flowers – RJD2Buy
  • Rolling With a Dub – Ari RozeBuy
  • I Walked Alone – YACHTBuy
