Goood Morning to t he Mainland!

SLATE says: USA Today leads with the mass pro-immigration protests planned for today in about 100 cities. There were also some big marches yesterday, including one in Dallas where the Associated Press cites police saying there were "350,000 to 500,000" protesters. The Washington Post leads with documents revealing, in something less than a shocker, that the U.S. military has a campaign to play up the importance of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and that it goes beyond what "some military intelligence officials" consider is merited by the facts. The New York Times leads with democratic reform in the Middle East not having much momentum nowadays after lots of talk of progress last year. "The question many people are asking is this," asked one analyst, "Did reform slow down, or did it just never happen?" The Los Angeles Times leads with the Air Force giving its recruits a taste of basic training, teaching them to fight as GIs. The Air Force, once derided as the "Chair Force," has been helping out the overstretched Army in Iraq and Afghanistan and often operates from smaller, more vulnerable bases than in earlier generations.
