Short Takes

There’s a rather large volcanic eruption going on in Indonesia.

Chile
is speeding up the recovery attempt of the trapped miners.

The Taliban attacked two U.S. bases in Afghanistan.

West Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin won the primary to run for Sen. Robert Byrd’s senate seat.

Two Americas: Glenn Beck vs. Al Sharpton.

The housing market in South Florida has plenty of bargains.

A tiger jumped the fence at Miami’s Jungle Island and briefly escaped. (No word if it was Brandon Inge or Johnny Damon….)

Tropical Update: Hurricane Danielle is heading out to sea, TS Earl looks like it will miss Florida, and the disturbance after that will follow Danielle.

The Tigers lost again to the Blue Jays.
