Tuesday's Mini-Report

<p>Today's edition of quick hits:* Syria: "Syrian artillery gunners shelled a bread bakery full of workers and customers on Tuesday

Today's edition of quick hits:

* Syria: "Syrian artillery gunners shelled a bread bakery full of workers and customers on Tuesday in an insurgent-held neighborhood of Aleppo, Syria's largest city, killing at least 20 people and wounding more than 30 in what activists and videographers described as a sudden and devastating attack."

* If President Obama's speech in Delray Beach, Florida this morning was any indication, he's not letting go of "Romnesia" anytime soon. (Note, this is about mocking Romney, but it's also about questioning his trustworthiness.)

* If you watch the clip, note that the president hits Romney for failing to mention veterans during last night's debate. (Romney, you'll recall, also failed to mention veterans during his convention speech.)

* An ugly day on Wall Street: "Stock fell sharply for the second time in three days after a new batch of American corporate executives raised concerns about global economic growth."

* First Arizona, now Indiana: "The state of Indiana cannot withhold Medicaid funding from the local Planned Parenthood affiliate because some of its clinics offer abortions, a federal appeals court ruled Tuesday."

* We're still learning more about Rep. Todd Akin's (R-Mo.) 1987 arrest at a reproductive health clinic in St. Louis.

* Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.) has returned to the Mayo Clinic, but will continue to seek re-election.

* Henry Blodget takes a look at the story about the Romneys investing in the company that makes the voting machines.

* And the Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin seriously believes that if the president criticizes George W. Bush, then he's necessarily "apologizing for this nation." I can't wrap my head around that one -- does it apply to criticism of Jimmy Carter, too? -- but that's what she said.

Anything to add? Consider this an open thread.
