    WASHINGTON (AP) — Michelle Obama’s annual question-and-answer session with the children of Executive Office employees has taken a somber turn. A young girl in the front row at Thursday’s event told the first lady that her dad had been out of work for three years. Then the girl popped up to hand Mrs. Obama her dad’s resume. The first lady seemed taken aback. Then Mrs. Obama explained to the other children, who might not have heard the girl’s comment, that it was a private matter but the girl was “doing something for her dad.” Mrs. Obama promised to deal…

    Cliven Bundy, a Nevada rancher who is attempting to fight government efforts to restrict the land that his cattle can graze on, has earned the support of some Republicans and tea party activists in recent months. Bundy is now making headlines for wondering out loud at a press conference if blacks, or "negros" as he calls them, would be better off as slaves given their current situation and has prompted the same Republicans who were standing up for him to quickly distance themselves. During a daily news conference that drew just one reporter and one photographer, reported the New York Times,…

    A Massachusetts hospital delivered a baby that’s the largest infant it has seen in more than a decade, according to WCVB. Caroline and Bryan Ruscak are the proud parents of Carisa, who weighed in at 14.5 lbs. She was delivered via C-section on April 22. Mom told WCVB she expected a large baby (her first was 10.5 lbs) but was surprised. “I heard the weight and I was like, ‘Oh my God.’ It validated me because I was in a lot of pain when I was pregnant, so to hear the size, it made sense,” she said.

    CLEVELAND — The warm front lifting today warmed up temperatures. We saw highs in the upper 50s to near 60. It will be cooler along the lake and milder inland. After a couple of cooler than normal days, we will see one “mild” day (Friday) at a cost: showers will accompany the next cold front. Another cool down will follow us into the weekend, but at least initially, it will be dry. Note that rain starts to fill our rain gauges toward mid-week and beyond as a “cut-off” low pressure system aloft drops anchor over the Ohio Valley by the first day of May. What about long-term?

Next month, on May 6th, voters in Cuyahoga County will have the chance to decide whether to institute another sin tax on alcohol and cigarettes to fund upgrades and maintenance of Cleveland's professional sports facilities.

Sometimes we see the dichotomy not just from game to game or inning to inning, but from at-bat to at-bat. I’ll get into Danny Salazar’s historically odd start much more later on, but the offense is not blameless in the Tribe’s less than optimal start to the season.

      From the credit where its due department: As much as Jack White’s new single, “Lazaretto,” suffers from clinical ADHD, and as much as the one memorable melody is nothing more than a rote recreation of ’70s funk, it does have some redeeming qualities. Ok, it has a redeeming quality and that is the return of those classic White bazooka-like guitar solos, the ones solely missing from his first solo LP. Look for White’s latest, Lazaretto, to be released June 10th on Third Man/Columbia Records.     Lee Bain’s III and the Glory Fires are real…

And, it’s so fucking good. “She’s On It/Jack The Ripper” is a Record Store Day release by a band, the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, who hit their creative peak in the ’90s. The song in question is a medley consisting of an old-school hip-hop joint by the Beastie Boys (“She’s On It”) and another track by the way influential Rock ‘N’ Roll guitarist, Link Wray (“Jack The Ripper”), dating back to 1961. Then again, as the man, Jon Spencer, would probably tell you himself: the best Rock…

    Although Record Store Day won’t celebrate its seventh birthday until Saturday, it’s already entering its awkward teenage phase. Some shop owners have become disillusioned with the glut of limited edition releases, especially those from major labels (I’m looking at you translucent Ghostbusters 12.”) Record store patrons complain about eBay flipping. It’s not uncommon to hear both groups compare the day to Black Friday. Yet, for all the kvetching, the stores will open early on Saturday, April 19th, and people will still be lined up for the opening of the doors.

      Now, this is a little better from Akron’s favorite sons. While “Fever,” the first track released from The Black Keys forthcoming album, Turn Blue (5.13 on Nonesuch), sounded like every track on El Camino, the duo’s commercial breakthrough and artistic hole of an album from 2011, the title track finds the boys stretching out a bit. The evenly pulsed bass and deliberately struck keys have a modern R&B sound about them. Listen closer, and there’s some space age gurgling going on deep in the mix. Dan Auerbach has brought back his finest falsetto, too. At…

      How, exactly, did Philadelphia band, The War on Drugs manage to sell out the Grog Shop on Saturday night? Many were curious, especially those who either had to scramble down their contact list to get in or were turned away at the door before show time. Sure, the abstract Americana of Adam Granduciel and hs mates has been highly rated by the influential website, Pitchfork, for a couple years now, and that helps. But as helpful Pitchfork can be at moving units and selling tickets for a young band, having the website’s backing, alone, doesn’t guarantee success. We’re in…
