Friday’s Mini-Report 05/03/13 05:30 PMUpdated 09/06/13 07:02 AM facebook twitter like save share group discuss Today’s edition of quick hits:* President Obama’s Latin American tour rolls on.* I think we’re doing socialism wrong: “Stocks closed out the week with a bang, with the Dow briefly topping 15,000 for the first time, as Wall Street cheered a better-than-expected April employment report. All three major indexes – the Dow Jones industrials, the broader S&P 500 and the tech-heavy Nasdaq – finished sharply higher for the week, with the Dow and S&P advancing to all-time closing highs.”* Boston: “Federal law enforcement officials are sharpening their focus on the widow of the dead suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings after finding al-Qaeda’s Inspire magazine and other radical Islamist material on her computer, according to law enforcement officials.”* Bangladesh: “In the aftermath of a deadly collapse of a garment factory in Bangladesh, one North American retail giant whose products have been made there is accusing the global industry of failing to properly respond.”* Sharp item from Zachary Roth: “Under the Roberts Court, the Chamber of Commerce has won more than two thirds of the cases in which it has participated, a new report finds. The result has been a legal shift in favor of big corporations at the expense of ordinary Americans.”* Somehow, this is all legal: “In January, Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, ascended to the powerful chairmanship of the House Financial Services Committee. Six weeks later, campaign finance filings and interviews show, Hensarling was joined by representatives of the banking industry for a ski vacation fundraiser at a posh Park City, Utah, resort.”* You’ve no doubt heard about the Medicaid study in Oregon. I endorse Jonathan Cohn’s take on its results.* And Glenn Beck thinks the man who committed suicide at the Houston airport yesterday was some sort of false-flag operation because “the idea that this is a coincidence … is too much to believe.” No, seriously, he said that.Anything to add?
