Good morning, hope you’re waking up to a sunny day, or at least some sunshine in a juice glass.

Media matters reports again on the guest stats of the Sunday shows, oh Cokie *sigh*

Looking forward to the FDL Book Salon today, have you changed all the passwords yet? Mashable’s Heartbleed Hit List can help.

Big topic this week is the Fort Hood shooting. If you get so mad because you can’t get your way that you get your gun and run around shooting people dead all over the place, you might have a mental health issue, just sayin’. Might not be legal insanity, but. Fox News Sunday isn’t ready to dismiss terrorism out of hand on this yet: “Lt. Gen. Mark Milley said in a press briefing there was no early indication that terrorism played a role in the shooting. But investigators say they’re keeping open minds and an open investigation when considering motive.” The Foxers were soo hoping.

Bob Schieffer interviews Tom Friedman on the big IPCC climate change report because who knows more about waiting another six months? But at least the discussion isn’t going to include the “balance” of a climate change denier (damnatio memoriae). And more importantly, at least CBS is broaching the topic!

Also BENGHAZI rears its ugly head again, too. Where else but Fox?.

Missing Flight MH370 and the Crimea vote in Ukraine (or is it in Russia now?) are the big stories.

Ukraine and CPAChanalia Sunday. Who better to ask about Ukraine at this time than Dick Cheney. After all, he does know all about invading countries for made-up self-serving reasons (CBS). At least Candy Crowley booked serious guests on the topic. And for you crazy lovers, ABC’s the exclusive only place to see BOTH Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, exclusively both.

Many governors appearing this morning, the National Governors Association meetup is this weekend (Chris Christie is the current head of the organization). Ukraine is also a topic; Venezuela’s unrest, not so much.
