Dear Commons Community,
Today is one of those days when there was just too many interesting things happening in the news to blog about.
First, Libyan rebels have basically taken control of Tripoli and have ended the dictatorship of Col. Muammar Qaddafi. The big question though is what happens next.
Second, the stock market rebounded yesterday with the Dowd Jones Industrial Average gaining 322 points.
Third, the NY Daily News is reporting that cheating by teachers and administrators in the NYC public schools has tripled since mayoral control was instituted. There were 225 reports of cheating in 2010 versus 68 in 2003.
Fourth, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. dropped the rape charges against Dominique Strauss-Kahn citing the victim has made too many falsehoods.
Oh and lastly, there was an EARTHQUAKE in New York.
