Posted on Tue, Dec 28, 2010 at 10:34 AM

Kennewick man dies in Egypt — Mike Braun, a Kennewick resident, was one of eight people who died in an Egyptian bus crash over the holiday weekend. His partner, Sue Flink, suffered two broken legs. (SR)

Meteorologists double down — Remember when they said the snow would fall last night, culminating in up to five inches? Wrong again, but they're going all in by calling for up to nine inches tonight. (KREM) 

We're jobless, now more than ever! — Unemployment has hit an all-time high in Washington. In related news, the jobless are eating less fruits and vegetables, leading many to believe that when you don't have a job, you should eat things that actually taste good. (KREM, WSJ)

Obama: Vick fan — Lastly, it turns out the president is a fan of second chances. According to Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie, Obama called him to thank him for giving star quarterback Michael Vick a shot at redemption. Vick recently served prison time for the brutal treatment of dogs he was raising for dog-fighting. Facing the Tea Party and a slew of Republican challengers, Obama surely finds solace in the story of a second chance done well. (Atlantic Wire)
