Woo Pig Sooie! It's another chilly open line. And Obama will strike another blow for equal rights

The line is open and we'll begin above with the video headline roundup, including a small Hog call. (Can the UA sue me for that?)

And this on the equal rights front:

* OBAMA ACTS: The president will sign an executive order Monday prohibiting discrimination on the ground of sexual orientation agaisnt people who do work for the federal government.

There will NOT be a religious exemption.

Nor should there be.

Would it be right to grant a religious exemption to people who wanted to discriminate on that ground against black people? Or Muslims? Or women? Of course it wouldn't.

* BRRRRR: I'm loving it. 58 degrees on my deck this morning. High in Little Rock only 69, a record low high for the date, easily. Previous record of 71 set back in 1880.
