Below, four people whose past, if recent news stories are to be believed, is clearly their present:

  • Larry Hagman  The soap star is dusting off his Stetson -- the 1980s soap Dallas is back
  • Dick Cheney  We're not sure if being VP for eight years still rankles, but the Bush-Cheney site still lives
  • David Roberts  Grist's journalist is realizing his cap-and-trade/energy policy beat is an endless loop of coverage that goes nowhere
  • Birthers  They're going nowhere, and this time, they're pumped for 2012
