Goood Morning to the Mainland!

Slate says: The New York Times, Wall Street Journal's world-wide newsbox, Washington Post, and Los Angeles Times all lead with Iran's announcement that it has enriched a bit of uranium for use in civilian reactors, though far below the quantity and purity needed for nukes. "Iran has joined the nuclear countries of the world," said President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, in a ceremony filled with music, dance, and fun. USA Today reefers Iran and leads with a two-story, travel-special: The first piece details government estimates that gas prices at the start of summer will be about 25 cents higher than last year, but are expected to go down as the summer goes on. The second story says there's been a "double-digit percentage" rise in average airfare since the fall.
