- New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's own people, well the people he hasn't fired yet, have found him innocent of any wrong-doing in the George Washington Bridge shutdown. My guess is the report writers, including those objective lawyers hired to investigate and be paid by taxpayer dollars, won't be fired
- President Obama, whose favorability numbers are down, met with the Pope, getting, pardon the expression, the halo effect from the Pontiff
- They are beginning to find pieces of the Malaysian plane that disappeared, we think, kinda sorta near where they kinda maybe figured it went down. Don't worry, tune into CNN and they will, I'm sure, clarify the reporting they are doing
- Dayton, an 11 seed in the March Madness of the NCAA basketball tournament, is still alive
- Russia's Vladimir Putin is still a thug, and now is pushing his thuginess on to his neighbors, which will keep gaining in number if he continues annexing countries
- Disgraced (well that may be the wrong word, embarrassed maybe? No that doesn't work either, uh, inconvenienced? Ok we'll go with that) ex-politicians Andrew Weiner and Eliot Spitzer are now members of the Fourth Estate because they are paid columnists. In related news, the newspaper business has been declining for many years. Just one more milestone on that journey
