news in passing

And in the news today ...

-- After an embarrassing number of years allegedly searching for him, authorities arrested mobster Whitey Bulger on Wednesday. Kind of reminds me of the hunt for Osama bin Laden.

-- Republicans and Democrats alike jumped on President Barak Obama's plans for withdrawing troops from Afghanistan.

-- New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is gearing up to press for passage of a gay marriage bill today.

-- For the first time in the American melting pot's history, minority babies comprise a majority of births.

-- In what is sometimes called an improving economy, unemployment claims rose.

Aside from the usual sturm und drang, that's the stuff that caught my eye.
