The House takes its 33rd vote against health care reform. At Penn State, a sad report of top level cover-up on child sex abuse. We’ve got more massacre in Syria. Slowdown in China. Minimum wage for city workers in Scranton.

From Tom’s Reading List
The Boston Globe “Government documents filed by Mitt Romney and Bain Capital say Romney remained chief executive and chairman of the firm three years beyond the date he said he ceded control, even creating five new investment partnerships during that time.”
The New York Times “The most senior officials at Penn State University failed for more than a decade to take any steps to protect the children victimized by Jerry Sandusky, the longtime lieutenant to head football coach Joe Paterno, according to an independent investigation of the sexual abuse scandal that rocked the university last fall.”
Houston Chroncile “An adviser to Mitt Romney suggested the presumptive Republican presidential candidate knew what he was walking into Wednesday in Houston when he told an NAACP audience that he would repeal the health care reform law, that President Barack Obama’s policies were not helping create jobs, and when he said that he would be a better president for African-Americans than the current White House occupant.”
