Part one of PBS’s impressive documentary on Bill Clinton aired last night, just hours after a Gallup poll showed Rick Santorum leading Mitt Romney by 36% to 26% among national Republicans. All eyes are now on Michigan as 2012’s sweater-vested version of the Comeback Kid may be poised to send Mitt Romney the way of Paul Tsongas. (Unless, of course, a version of Jennifer Flowers emerges as well.)

BAILING OUT GREECE: Eurozone finance ministers agreed to save Greece from bankruptcy. The biggest, fattest Greek losers, it seems, will be private investors in Greek debt who will take even steeper losses than expected. But for now, euros will still be accepted in Mykonos.

THE DREAMLINER: CBS Sunday Morning gave us a tour of the much-anticipated Boeing 787 which, according to designer Blake Emery, will help passengers “recapture the magic that flying really is.” We’re not so sure that tinted windows and ambient light will be all it takes, though.

ANOTHER DELIGHTFUL SNL REUNION: Like fellow alum Jimmy Fallon did in December, Maya Rudolph soared as host of Saturday Night Live this weekend. The entire episode is worth your attention, though we particularly enjoyed Justin Timberlake’s much-needed goosing of the box of granola otherwise known as Bon Iver.

A short week calls for swift action, gentlemen. Press on.
