Thursday’s Mini-Report

Today’s edition of quick hits:

* In Yemen, an American drone killed at least nine people today, “including a man identified as a leader of the local branch of Al Qaeda.”

* Syrian military aircraft bombed a town held by insurgents in northern Syria today, leveling apartment buildings and a mosque and killing more than 40 people, including many children.”

* Bill Clinton wasn’t the only one on the campaign trail in Ohio for President Obama today; Bruce Springsteen was there too.

* Conference Board report: “The index of U.S. leading economic indicators rose in September by the most in seven months.”

* Can’t blame her: “Dr. Karen Remley has resigned her position as Virginia’s health commissioner effective today, citing the state’s controversial abortion clinic regulations.”

* If you read one article today, make it this gem from Jonathan Cohn: “Blue States are from Scandinavia, Red States are from Guatemala.”

* The complete unraveling of Romney’s “12 million new jobs” claim hasn’t generated nearly enough attention, though I’m glad Dana Milbank and Paul Krugman noticed.

* Amazingly, it appears Karl Rove’s American Crossroads says things in attack ads that aren’t true.

* Oh, Megyn Kelly: “Declaring something an act of terror does not necessarily mean you are declaring it a terror attack.”

* What’s the latest on the “binders full of women” meme? Amusing binder reviews on Amazon.com, of course.

* And after 80 years in print, Newsweek is adopting an all-digital format in early 2013.

Anything to add? Consider this an open thread.
