Monday’s Mini-Report


Today’s edition of quick hits:

* As the U.S. Navy shifts a guided-missile destroyer in the Pacific to waters off the Korean peninsula, NBC’s News Jim Maceda reports live from South Korea.

* More on this Texas story on tonight’s show: “Deputies escorted some Kaufman County employees into the courthouse Monday, two days after the district attorney and his wife were found shot to death in their home in an attack that stirred fears that other public employees could be targeted by assassins.”

* Kenya’s Supreme Court upheld the election of Uhuru Kenyatta as the country’s president, setting aside questions of voter fraud.

* Michigan Republican Dave Agema, a member of the national Republican National Committee, will not back down or apologize for promoting the argument that “part of the homosexual agenda is to get the public to affirm their filthy lifestyle.” Good luck with the rebranding, Reince.

* A sweeping scandal: “The former superintendent of Atlanta Public Schools and nearly three dozen other administrators, teachers, principals and other educators were indicted Friday in one of the nation’s largest cheating scandals.”

* If you heard that teen-pregnancy rates are getting worse, you heard wrong.

* It’s terribly disappointing that the New York Times published that ridiculous David Stockman piece yesterday.

* Rush Limbaugh’s latest, noted without comment: it “may well be the case” that Obama “inspires racism” in others.

* And sometimes, presidential duties include calming a crying child at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.

Anything to add? Consider this an open thread.
