Each morning, Celeste Headlee scours the country’s newspapers for interesting stories. Here's her list for today:

From Sign On San Diego:

Just a small note - NASA says that the 7.2 magnitude on Easter Sunday shifted the Earth's crust by up to 10 feet. 

From The Los Angeles Times:

This seems incredibly hopeful to me - best economic indicator in a long while.  From the article: 

The Business Roundtable, an association of CEOs at big U.S. companies, said Wednesday that 39% of those surveyed in the second quarter of 2010 expected to increase hiring in the next six months, while 43% anticipated no change. Only 17% reported that jobs would diminish. The percentage of CEOs who planned to hire is at the highest level since the second quarter of 2007.


From The Detroit News:

New charges against Kwame Kilpatrick open a whole new can of worms.  From the article:

If these charges are proved, they show otherwise: That adultery was one sin -- and reckless greed, disservice to the public and flouting of the laws were others.Is this all there is? Well, these 19 counts seem to serve a useful purpose, giving pause to officials whose lust might overwhelm their ethical navigation systems, who might believe everybody uses nonprofits like debit cards."This is our BP," a Detroit political observer said to me, comparing the Kilpatrick mess with the Gulf oil spill. "Let's hope this is the cap."
