Epic flooding in the Northeast this week, and plenty more news beyond.

Big money promised for Haiti. Subway bombings in Moscow. Offshore drilling pushed by the Obama White House. And a raft of Christian militia arrests in Michigan.

Then, there were the criminal charges over high school bullying. And job numbers that may be less than they seem.
