Cast members Robert Pattinson (L) and Taylor Lautner pose before the German premiere of the movie Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn in Berlin November 18, 2011 (Credit: Reuters/Thomas Peter)Here’s the plot of the most popular movie in America: a brooding teen marries her vampire lover, whose family strikes an uneasy alliance with a jealous werewolf to protect the bride and the baby she’s carrying.  I had to find that summary online since I didn’t see the latest installment of The Twilight saga, which apparently puts me in the minority.

Does anyone else wonder what God thinks of us this morning?  Our politics are dysfunctional, as the deficit reduction supercommittee will reportedly announce today its failure to do its job.  Partisan deadlock apparently killed the effort, raising fears of another stock market dive and prolonged recession.  Efforts to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons are apparently failing as well.  Meanwhile, the top ten Google trends this morning are led by the Giants/Eagles game (no Cowboys?) and include green bean casserole and a cranberry sauce recipe.
