Spy swap in Vienna today.  Russian, American planes, on the tarmac.  Like a weird flashback to the Cold War.

Other news this week, not so retro.  A federal judge says a ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional.  Washington and Arizona go nose-to-nose on immigration law.  The Republican National Committee chairman calls Afghanistan Obama’s war.

At the White House, the US and Israeli leaders make nice for the cameras.  In the Gulf, BP says its getting close to a handle on the oil.

And then there’s LeBron.
