Who can resist those snappy little personality quizzes? Somehow it feels as though some great mystery about ourselves will be revealed, though it never is. Still, you might have been spending a lot of time wondering whether you're an Adelie sort of penguin or a Chinstrap. The people at Pew Charitable Trusts' environmental group seemingly have been aware of how many sleepless nights you've had pondering this very issue, so they came up with a Penguin Personality Quiz . The official reason is that Thursday is World Penguin Day -- because of course every month, every week, every day, is named for something, and I'm not just talking about the sun, the moon and Norse gods.

Don't look for Max Baucus in a new edition of “Profiles in Courage.” My colleague Jon Healey on Tuesday lamented the effect that the Montana Democratic senator's decision to not seek reelection in 2014 will have on an overhaul of the tax code. But my issue with Baucus is far less complex; in fact, I just wonder one thing: Why couldn't Baucus throw us gun control advocates a bone on his way out the door?
