Short Takes

Pirate Standoff — The US Navy has them surrounded, but no sign of giving in yet from either side.

Thai Riots
— A state of emergency is declared in Bangkok.

Sprucing up in Port of Spain — The nation of Trinidad and Tobago is getting ready for the Summit of the Americas. (I’ve been to Trinidad — the airport, actually — on the way to Tobago. Nice place.)

Top Dog — The Obamas get their dog. (Believe me, this is press-stopping news to a lot of people.)

Shut up and go away — Leonard Pitts’ advice for Levi Johnston.

Tigers beat the Rangers 4-3 on Saturday, get ready to sweep today.
