Here are the top stories:
- New ‘massacre’ in central Syria (BBC) — No good news from that front.
- Dow Jumps 286.84 Points in Broad Rally (WSJ) — Just to throw you a little good news.
- Wisconsin Vote Underscores Challenges for Democrats (NYT) — There are a bunch of stories out there like this today, and it’s ridiculous. This was a recall vote over the prerogatives of public employee unions. Not exactly the realm where the Dems compete for swing voters. About like saying that because Wisconsin rejected a bill to roll back millionaire’s taxes, the GOP is in trouble.
- Ray Bradbury, Author Of ‘Fahrenheit 451’ And Other Classics, Dies (NPR) — Kind of a long headline. Hey, if you have to be told who Bradbury was, you probably don’t want to read this.
- 68 years later, and Hitler is still dead (Various) — Hey, I couldn’t let the day go by without an acknowledgment of the day we put more than 150,000 men on a beach in spite of the deadliest efforts of the Third Reich to keep us off of. And then liberated Europe.
- Columbia clears way for Walmart (The State) — This is old now, but it’s still the biggest local story.
