Well, while things are progressing nicely with alleged accomplice Joyce Mitchell… she’s been charged and arraigned, and it turns out she was allegedly not only going to drive the get-away car, but the escapees were going to off her husband allowing the three to then roam out into the sunset together… on the capturing the actual escapees front, not much at all has happened, despite more than 800 law enforcement officials in the hunt. At this point, authorities admit the pair could be almost anywhere, and if no breaks come soon, one wonders how long the state can invest the current amount of resources into the search.

The Obama Administration really isn’t sure of what to do at this point. House Democrats appear pretty set to derail the fast track trade authority, and used the worker assistance (TAA) provision of the bill to vote their displeasure. And there is no indication anything is going to change in that regard. So the administration must consider giving it another go anyway, or tearing up the Senate bill and starting from scratch. Whatever happens, talk within the Beltway is the battle between President Obama and his own party, not to mention what international trade opportunities might be lost because of the defeat of the bill itself.

A lengthy report published Saturday revealed new details about the fatal shooting of 12-year-old Tamir Rice by a Cleveland police officer, but made no recommendation on whether the officer or his partner should face criminal charges. The county’s sheriff’s report also left some major questions unanswered. Perhaps foremost: Did Officer Tim Loehmann issue a warning before firing the fatal round? The police have said he did, but the new report suggested no witnesses heard any warning before shots were fired. In the coming weeks or months, a grand jury is expected to hear evidence in the case and decide whether to bring indictments against Officer Loehmann and his partner, Officer Frank Garmback.

Two convicted murderers who used power tools to cut their way out of a prison near the Canadian border could be nearby or “in Mexico by now,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Sunday. The intense manhunt focused on the fields and Adirondack woods near the prison in upstate New York after the inmates’ escape was apparently hampered by a prison employee’s decision to back out as their getaway driver nine days ago. The inmates, David Sweat and Richard Matt, planned to have the now-jailed prison worker drive them about seven hours away to an unknown destination, She backed out at the last minute, but remains the only one arrested at this point.
