Since the epic Battle of Winterfell episode in the latest season of Game of Thrones aired on HBO two weeks ago, the Cushing Library at Texas A & M University has seen its own horde lining up outside its walls: fans excited to see a particular dagger that plays a key part in the episode. (No spoilers here in case you're still catching up, so we'll leave it at that).

North Dakota congressional representatives have approved a budget that includes the construction of a Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library in western North Dakota. The budget for the library includes a $15-mllion endowment fund and authorization for a $35-million loan, but only if $100 million is raised in cash or pledged donations. Roosevelt, the nation's 26th and one of its most influential presidents, does not currently have a presidential library.
