While the University of Connecticut men’s basketball team takes on the University of Kentucky for the NCAA championship tonight, one UConn player wonders where his next meal will come from.

First Lady Michelle Obama has been tasked with pressuring President Obama‘s loyal base to support his lame duck health care reform by purchasing insurance through their state exchanges.
At the end of a new ad featuring the mothers of superstars Alicia Keys, Jennifer Lopez, and Adam Levine, Michelle says, “We nag you because we love you.”
Americans were shocked to learn of the National Security Agency’s reach into their private lives. A shocking new report released today revealed the NSA steals over 200 million text messages PER DAY!

Troubled music producer and rapper Kanye West took to his Twitter account yesterday to clear up rumors that he compared himself to the late, great Nelson Mandela.
In a series of tweets, Kanye lauded Mandela for serving “as a guiding light to illuminate our future,” and he chastised the media for engineering “false stories and noise” about him.
“I’ve never said anything to dishonor or trivialize the life or transition of one of the most inspiring leaders,” West tweeted.
It isn’t clear how the rumor got started, but it’s not a stretch to believe the egotistic producer said those things about himself. Anyway, thanks to Kanye for clearing that up.
Judy Smith, the D.C. damage control expert who inspired ABC’s hit TV series Scandal, says she has not seen a disaster like Obamacare in a while. She added that President Obama has lost the trust of the American people with his problem-plagued Obamacare launch.
Smith, who was a guest on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight, said “I think it is very problematic really because this was [President Barack Obama’s] signature piece of legislation. And I think everybody agrees that [Obamacare] has been an absolute mess.”
Media mogul Russell Simmons says President Obama’s troubled health care law has already saved thousands, if not millions, of lives. Simmons made his ludicrous claims in an op-ed post on his website, Global Grind.
“Yes, we initially wanted single payer, and we had to compromise back in 2009 for the Affordable Care Act,” Simmons wrote. “But, [Obamacare] is a damn good piece of legislation that has already saved hundreds of thousands, if not millions of lives. So, let us not give up now.”
Simmons did not provide any statistics or evidence to back up his claims.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie criticized the problem plagued rollout of the Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare on CBS This Morning.
Christie said President Obama failed to keep his promise to the American people — that they could keep their health insurance plans when OabamCare launched. “People weren’t told the truth,” Christie said.
