Just Off the Wire!
The Associated Press is just now reporting that a U.S. helicopter fired on a wedding party in western Iraq, killing more than 40 people. “The U.S. military said it could not confirm the report and was investigating,” according to the A.P. [Post-publication insertion: Russ Barnes of Apostropher reminds us this isn’t the first wedding we’ve caused to go horribly wrong.]

Watch Out!
Be careful out there, people, especially those of you in Massachusetts: Gov. Mitt Romney (R) is having himself a nice little temper tantrum.

Separate This!
Strange, isn’t it, how few senators understand such concepts as the separation of powers and congressional oversight?

Juxtapose This!
Don’t compound your problems at the gas pump by using your cell phone while filling your tank. It’s not only rude and tacky, it’s dangerous.

Give it Back!
The Los Angeles Philharmonic got back a prized 300-year-old cello that had been stolen three weeks ago.
