NewsBites: 2000s Faves, Sexy & Single in DC, More Same-Sex Marriage, The 2010 Census, Who Wants to Work @ Google?

Parlour Fam, what were your favorite products of the decade? Can you narrow it down to 10? I can barely remember life before an iPod, cigarette jeans, and Crest Whitestrips. Oh, and good ol’ GPS. Damn……… has it been 10 years already? [AA]
A new Sex and the City? Just maybe. Grey’s Anatomy Director Shonda Rhimes, is set to produce Bitch is the New Black; a satirical film about the young, black, successful and single life in Washington. Check out the woman behind the inspiration. [WashPo]

At least someone’s doing something right: DC’s voted this week in favor of same-sex marriage. If passed, the new bill would allow same-sex couples from around the country to marry in the District. Let’s just hope it doesn’t get shot down by Congress……… or the Catholic Church. [NYT]

Policy analysts have been questioning the way in which the Census is tallied, noting that the collection of data on prisoners paints an inaccurate picture. Government funding to the municipalities is distributed based on Census results: should inmates be counted as part of the communities they came from, or the ones they’re serving their sentence? Both have implications. [WashPo]

The Google Headquarters is the business! Slides, dancer poles, and massage rooms during lunch. Why not? [FreshnessMag]
