1. CINEMA SHOOTING
Theater tragedy: It started with a father texting his daughter in a Florida cineplex. It ended with him dead on the theater floor. The saga unfolded before moviegoers in Wesley Chapel, a town near Tampa. The previews were still running when he sent the text, setting off an argument with a 71-year-old retired police officer behind him. The men argued and argued before the former officer left and then came back. They argued some more before shots were fired, killing the 43-year-old dad and wounding his wife.
2. CHRISTIE SPEAKS
Address under duress: State of the State addresses aren’t usually occasions when the eyes of a nation are fixed on a governor. But that’ll be the case this afternoon when New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie delivers his. There’s another storm brewing for Christie. Federal officials are checking into the possibility that he misused relief funds his state received after Superstorm Sandy to make himself look good. The catastrophe pushed Christie onto the center of the national stage and made him look pretty electable to people far from the Jersey Shore. There has since been talk of a Christie presidential bid in 2016. A Democratic critic in New Jersey called for the investigation, after Christie and his family appeared in ads promoting New Jersey tourism to the rest of America.
3. SWEARING TODDLER
I’ll be darned: Remember that Nebraska 2-year-old cursing like a sailor in a viral video? A juvenile court judge in Omaha now says the toddler can stay with his mother, but can’t go back home. How’s that work, you ask? Both will be placed with the same foster family, since both are juveniles. Their original home was deemed too dangerous for both of them, because of a history of gang involvement. Another kid at the home was wounded in gunfire, a county prosecutor said, and the boy’s 38-year-old grandmother has done jail time on gun charges.
