Virtual Front Page, Wednesday, June 2, 2010

Here’s today’s belated report:

  1. Benjamin charged in wreck, pays fine ( — Not the biggest story in the world, but I’m leading with it at this hour because it’s long-awaited local news. More details available at
  2. Israel ‘had no choice’ over raid (BBC) — Benjamin Netanyahu sticks up for his country’s actions.
  3. U.S. Car Sales Rose in May (WSJ) — Sales of GM’s brands jumped 32 percent. Since we’re all shareholders now, I expect to get my taste; don’t you? All I want is to wet my beak. In related news, Ford plans to drop the Mercury brand.
  4. For Republican Women, 2010 Is Already A Huge Year (NPR) — Nikki is among the distaff candidates mentioned in this national story. Is it OK to say “distaff?” I was gonna say “chicks,” but figured that wouldn’t fly…
  5. Crews work to free saw stuck at damaged BP oil well (WashPost) — … and then they decided to saw it, but that didn’t work either…
  6. SC lawmakers nix $5B budget plan over drug cuts (AP) — Just a reminder that a lackluster (except for passing the cigarette tax hike!) legislative session is drawing to a close.
