The Short List

  • Update on Egypt.  There are reports of pro-government demonstrators clashing with opposition protesters.  President Obama gave a brief address telling Mubarak "the status quo is not sustainable."

  • Yemen's President Ali Abdullah Saleh said neither he, not his son would not run for president in 2013.  President Saleh has been in office for 32 years.

  • A mental heath specialist recommended that Wikileaks source, Pfc. Bradley Manning, should not be deployed to Iraq, but his immediate commanders did not heed this advice.

  •  Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow, which means an early spring.  Surely of little comfort to people from Dallas, through Chicago, on to Boston experiencing extreme winter weather.
