Contempt for Holder. Life and death in Egypt. Clemens walks. The Fed twists. Our weekly news roundtable goes behind the headlines.
Resonant names, for better and worse, in the news this week. Jerry Sandusky. Rielle Hunter. Roger Clemons. Rodney King. “Can’t we all just get along?” Verdict, still out on that. In Congress, a party-line vote of contempt for Eric Holder. In Florida, Romney and Obama battle for Hispanic favor. Votes.
In Egypt, martial law returns. On the border of Syria, the CIA engages. We’ve got big banks downgraded. Markets unhappy. George Zimmerman tapes in the Trayvon Martin case.

New York Times “But Mr. Romney, who has refused to say whether he would overturn a policy announced last week by President Obama that would stop the deportation of some illegal immigrants who were brought to the country as children, again sidestepped that question.”
ABC News “The latest and most detailed account yet of what happened in Sanford, Fla., on Feb. 26 comes from a voice stress test that Zimmerman passed, along with a video re-enactment, a handwritten statement and audio interviews conducted in the days after the shooting by investigators.”
Wall Street Journal “U.S. Commerce Secretary John Bryson resigned Wednesday night, nearly two weeks after being involved in two car crashes in Southern California he said were linked to a seizure.”
