The NCAA tournament this year is a minefield for top seeded teams. Yesterday, Number 1 Xavier lost to Florida State, UNC lost (big) to Texas A&M, Syracuse beat one of the pre-tournament favs, Michigan State (Syracuse had to play their way into the tournament…now they’re in the Sweet 16), Cinderella team UMBC lost to Kansas State, Clemson upset Auburn and on and on and on. Everyone’s bracket is busted, so don’t feel bad, enjoy the Madness. Check the scores out at SI.COM’s live bracket. 
The usual suspects will say the usual things today in Washington, as the town ramps up for another week of deception, confrontation, recriminations, and inept management of government. Really–can’t we do better than this?
Today is National Let’s Laugh Day. You know what to do: tell a good joke or listen to one. Everyone needs a good laugh today.
