 Looks like another scorcher this weekend. Today’s forecasted high will be 100 degrees in the Triangle with triple digit temperatures on the radar for Saturday and Sunday. So as you make plans to stay indoors, here’s one cool idea to try this weekend.

Down along the Gulf, Tropical Storm Bonnie is headed toward the oil spill. If there’s any good news, it appears the cap will remain in place while workers at the site evacuate.

Earlier this week, BP caught some grief (and rightly so) for a Photoshop job showing BP employees hard at work in their Command Center, monitoring a wall of screens displaying oil-spill footage. You can see the original image at Huffington Post, as well as some of the very funny doctored images that readers sent in with their depiction of  “Command Central.”

Politico reports the blame game is now well underway in Washington over failed efforts to address global warming in the 111th Congress.

The Daily Kos has details on a new poll that shows Elaine Marshall with a two point lead over Republican Richard Burr in the U.S. Senate race.

Watauga Watch has the latest on her Royal Highness Virginia Foxx and her encounter with a couple of interns this week.

And finally, the Tour de France wraps up Sunday along the Champs Elysees in Paris with Alberto Contador poised to win cycling’s most prestigious event. For those who missed Andy Schleck victory on the Col du Tourmalet on Thursday, it’s worth catching the highlights.
