Priorities were raised to the most significant heights today on the House floor with the Energy Bill vote and a moment of silence for the King of Pop.

USA Today: The House of Representatives paused during debate on a climate change bill today to rise for a moment of silence in tribute to singer Michael Jackson.

"On behalf of a generation, thank God for letting us live in his generation and era," Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr., D-IL, told the House.

"We pay tribute to the culture that he has left behind, his legacy," said Rep. Diane Watson, D-CA.
