Front Page: Airlines Grounded, FL on Slavery, North Korea

  • The two Democratic candidates are both giving speeches on the economy this morning. Obama is speaking in New York now, Clinton to follow in North Carolina. More to come as the speeches develop.
  • Delta Air Lines became the second major airline in two days to announce cancellations in service. Delta grounded about 325 flights to let engineers inspect two types of planes in its fleet in what they're calling a "voluntary" safety review. The day before, American Airlines halted 200 flights for similar reasons, prompted by questions raised by the FAA and American safety officials about how a certain bundle of wires is secured to the MD-80 aircraft. Hundreds of passengers have been affected.
  • In Florida, the Legislature has formally apologized for the state’s “shameful” history of slavery. Florida joins five other states that have expressed public regret for the practice. The resolution passed overwhelmingly in both houses in an emotional vote. Governor Charlie Crist quoted Edmund Burke saying, “All that is necessary for evil to prevail is for good people to do nothing. I think we are reminded of that today because it takes courage to do the right thing, and it’s not always easy.”
  • North Korea expelled all but two of the South Korean managers from a joint industrial park. The park is on the border of the two countries and has been a key symbol of reconciliation. No reason was given for the expulsion, but South Korea has recently said it would link progress at the park with progress on the North's denuclearization effort. Both the US and South Korea have warned North Korea that time was running out for it to declare the full extent of its nuclear capabilities.
