The big story of course this weekend has been the story of the Secret Service agents being relieved of duty in Colombia. It’s now being reported that all this happened because of an argument over $47.

Find out more in the forthcoming movie sequel, “In the Line of Fire II: I’d Swear I Put Your Money on the Dresser”:

A few other possible discussion points…

Hillary Clinton’s also having fun in Colombia.
*****

Dick Cheney is back on the scene: Obama has been an “unmitigated disaster.”

Did SNL ask Mitt Romney to host?
*****

More than 100 tornadoes were reported across the Midwest and Plains states. The very bad night of storms left at least five dead in Oklahoma.
*****

If you missed it, check out this obituary that appeared in the Denver Post on April 12th.
*****

*****

Who would have guessed that Lionel Richie’s lyrical question “Hello, is it me you’re looking for” was addressed to the IRS?
*****

*****

Last but definitely least… Tim Geithner was on Face the Nation this morning and was asked about Mitt Romney’s claim that 92.3 percent of jobs lost since Obama took office were held by women. Geithner called the claim “misleading and ridiculous,” but couldn’t refute the numbers. Geithner’s assessment was similar to that of the Washington Post’s fact checker: True but false. I propose a new rating for fact-check conclusions: “More accurate than Turbo Tim’s tax returns.”
