Obama is currently speaking to the press today in regards to ending tax breaks for the rich, Afghanistan, and on whether or not he's ready to evolve already about the gay marriage thing. EVOLVE ALREADY!! (Hurry and you can watch the rest of the press conference here.)
The Greek parliament approves an "austerity plan" to clear the way to get a loan for their second bailout.
The Bank of America says it will pay $8.5 billion to investors who were scammed by fraudulent mortgage securities. (But what about my $15 overdraft fee??)

Fresh off his insulting the gays tirade, and subsequent apology tour, Tracy Morgan has been busted for making fun of the mentally disabled. (HEY! Leave the Mercury staff alone!)
In good local political news, smarty pants Steve Novick is entering the race for departing Randy Leonard's commissioner seat. (Oh, and by the way, Randy Leonard won't be running again, in case you didn't catch that passing reference.)
