3 weeks ago Friday morning, Richard Matt and David Sweat escaped from the Clinton Correctional facility in upstate NY. So far the only arrests have been in regards to the prison employees who helped them out. Including the most recent, with guard Gene Palmer admitting he did realize there were hacksaw blades and other tools in that hamburger meat he provided to the escapees, with the caveat he didn’t realize they were going to use them to break out. Otherwise, after a promising lead in finding DNA evidence in a different part of New York State, the trail of pursuit is cold once again.

President Obama with his big victory in the Supreme Court regarding his healthcare policy, seemingly ending any possibility of Obamacare being derailed by any legal action at this point. If its going to be upended, it would have to happen legislatively, and that seems somewhat unlikely at this point. Barak Richman of Duke specializes in heathcare policy. We had him when this case was first argued to the court, and he returns this morning to discuss the decision, the legal points made by each, and whether this in fact does put bring least a judicial end to the debate.

In a startling turn, Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev rose to his feet and apologized to the victims and their loved ones for the first time Wednesday just before a judge formally sentenced him to death. “I am sorry for the lives that I’ve taken, for the suffering that I’ve caused you, for the damage that I’ve done — irreparable damage,” the 21-year-old college student said in his Russian accent, breaking more than two years of public silence. To the victims, he said: “I pray for your relief, for your healing.” The apology came after Tsarnaev listened impassively for about three hours as a procession of victims and their loved ones lashed out at him for his “cowardly” and “disgusting” acts.

The Republican-controlled Congress passed major trade legislation Wednesday that was long-sought by President Barack Obama but vehemently opposed by most lawmakers in his party. That trade measure is headed to the White House for his signature. Now it’s back to battles along traditional party lines. To that end, the Republican-controlled House approved a plan Wednesday to block a key element of President Obama’s strategy for fighting climate change, allowing states to opt out of the administration’s carbon emission limits. And then, the Republican-controlling powerful House Appropriations panel adopted a sweeping sequester-mandated spending bill that protects some domestic programs, but slashes others. Obama is demanding equal increases for domestic programs as a condition for signing any of the appropriations bills. Ahh, it’s all getting back to normal quickly.

As authorities continue to hunt for the escaped New York prisoners, more details are emerging regarding how they were able to pull off the feat. Monday we heard of perfunctory bed checks, where faces weren’t dutifully identified before moving on to the next cell. Now we hear that hacksaw blade and related tools were hidden inside hamburger meat, put there by their alleged accomplice Joyce Mitchell, who would then store it in the tailor shop fridge at the facility. A prison guard has been identified who brought to meat to the escapees in their cells… which is against the rules… but he says he had no idea hacksaw blades and tools were inside of it. Needless to say, security protocols appear to have gotten a bit sloppy at the Clinton correctional facility.
