Taking Out the Trash

What we almost missed today…

TVNewser reports CBS’ Bob Schieffer will be the commencement speaker at Maryville University in St. Louis May 2.

NBC’s David Gregory tried to interview Sen. Claire McCaskill via Twitter. Yesterday Sen. McCaskill (@clairecmc) tweeted, “Just heard news on Gregg. Old ways die hard around here. I know our President won’t give up on changing the unproductive partisan habits.” Gregory was quick to respond with “@clairecmc Senator, do you think it was unrealistic to think Sen Gregg would be a good fit a Dem admin? Or was It Gregg who was unrealistic?” TVNewser asks, if Sen. McCaskill answered, would it be on-the-record?

On a far more serious note, the WaPo reports today that the Pentagon may rethink an 18-year ban on photos and videos of coffins bringing war casualties home.
