Wednesday’s Mini-Report

Today’s edition of quick hits:

* Criminal charges will reportedly be brought against George Zimmerman this afternoon, with an announcement expected in about a half-hour.

* Quakes, but no tsunami: “Two powerful earthquakes struck about two hours apart off the coast of Sumatra on Wednesday afternoon, spreading panic among residents of the Indonesian island and reviving memories of the devastating 2004 earthquake and tsunami in the same area.”

* Nearing a launch: “North Korea completed the hurried transition to its young new leader, Kim Jong-un, on Wednesday, as a confrontation with the United States loomed over the North’s intent to launch a long-range rocket.”

* Kofi Annan is so desperate to broker a stable cease-fire in Syria, he’s seeking Iran’s help. The former U.S. secretary general is also cautioning the West against arming rebel forces.

* Fox News believes it has already identified the “Fox Mole.” The Mole himself doesn’t seem to think so.

* Wendy’s is reportedly the latest corporate sponsor to reportedly pull its support of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). The list seems to be getting longer.

* I always love the White House White Board.

* And for the second time in less than a week, National Review has had to get rid of one its writers for being a racist.

Anything to add? Consider this an open thread.
