News of the day

This is going to be a different kind of post. I am going to condense all the news headlines that have been on the radar today. You tell me which one you think is the most important in the world, which one you found most interesting, or which one is most important to you.

Ok we have oil spills, spelling bees, job reports, supreme court nominees, war, and gambling. In one day we are bombarded by thousands of headlines of one sort of another. How are we supposed to decipher what is truth, what is fiction and what the media wants us to believe.

I guess my point here is make up your own mind. Don’t let someone else form your ideas or worldview. Don’t just take it a face value. What was your favorite news story of the day?
