Friday Afternoon News Roundup

Friday Afternoon News Roundup

Remember that Barack Obama is a communist. Or did they say he was a socialist? Whatever. He is bad for business. The Dow Jones industrial average, however, briefly topped 15,000 for the first time ever.

The new job numbers are out for April. The unemployment rate is 7.5%. The economy gained 165,000 jobs in April. The Economic Policy Institute has more.

As long as I’m talking about the economy, I saw this interesting bit of data about home prices skyrocketing in Las Vegas.

For some reason (and maybe you have to be a Conservative to understand it) Conservatives continue to jump up and down about Benghazi. Fox News continues to try to make this into some Watergate scandal, but there’s no therethere.

One of the cool things about tracking down the Boston Marathon bombers is that they stole a Mercedes ML 350 SUV with mbrace technology. This made the car incredibly easy to track and allowed the Boston police department to close in on the suspects. Kind of cool. (more…)

Captured

Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev

I really don’t have anything to add. This 19-year-old male was captured.

From Boston.com:

Four days after two deadly explosions turned the finish line of the Boston Marathon into a scene of bloody chaos, the 19-year-old college student believed to be responsible for placing the bombs was taken into custody Friday night, bringing a sense of relief and justice to a shaken region.

Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev of Cambridge was pulled from his hiding place in a boat parked behind a house on Franklin Street shortly before 8:45 p.m. Friday in this community just outside Boston.

“We are eternally grateful for the outcome here tonight. We have a suspect in custody,” said Colonel Timothy Alben, commander of the State Police. “We’re so grateful to bring justice and closure to this case.”

“It’s a night where I think we’re all going to rest easy,” Governor Deval Patrick said at a news conference with a host of other officials in Watertown.

Here are some of the great tweets that are flying around the internets!! The best was from the Boston Police Department.
