- U.S. to dump HealthCare.gov contractor (WashPost) — CGI Federal will be replaced by Accenture.
- Target Says 70 Million Individuals’ Data May Have Been Stolen (NPR) — But wait — the NYT says it’s more like 110 million.
- CAR resignation brings joy and fear (The Guardian) — The continuing unholy mess in Central Africa.
- N.J. Lawmakers Release New Bridge-Lane Closure Records (WSJ) — It sucks to be Chris Christie this week.
- Hollande attacks report of affair (BBC) — He indicates he may sue. But I wonder: Is this sort of thing even considered defamatory in France?
