BULLETIN – AFP/Geneva: “The UN's World Meteorological Organisation said Thursday that 2010 was the warmest year on record, confirming a ‘significant’ long-term trend of global warming.” JOHN FITZGERALD KENNEDY, age 43, was inaugurated the 35th president, 50 years ago today: “Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.” jfk50.org Story Continued Below --Todd S.

Driving the Day SCOOP -- MIKE PENCE will appear in Wisconsin with Speaker Paul Ryan and Sen. Ron Johnson Saturday morning, according to a source involved in the planning. The event -- at Field Park in Mukwonago -- will be part of Johnson’s bus tour. Gov. Scott Walker and Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner will also appear. RYAN’s relationship with the Trump campaign is complicated, to say the least. Ryan has been openly critical of Donald Trump, and has said he’s plainly focused on re-electing a House majority, and would do nothing to help the top of the ticket. Pence and Ryan have been friends for 15 years -- even if Pence won’t endorse the Wisconsin Republican for another term as speaker. http://politi.co/2euKquY Listen to Playbook in 90 Seconds http://bit.ly/2flKjRt ...

I spent the last two days in Akron, gaining perspective on the NBA Finals from the Cavaliers’ side of the equation in the hometown of LeBron James. My column about the experience is running on Page A1 of Tuesday’s print editions but it had to be trimmed for space reasons. So this is the unedited “Directors’ Cut” version of the column: AKRON, Ohio Here I am at the Most Valuable Basketball Maternity Ward in America. It is located on the second floor at Summa Akron City Hospital. Rosemary Williams has been at the check-in desk for more than 30 years. She has seen much, all sorts of labors, difficult and smooth and slow and fast. “We haven’t had a baby born here at my desk yet,” she said Monday morning. “But we’ve come close.” Safe to say this: Of the many births that she has logged in, none are receiving as much publicity this month as the deliveries of two infants who came into the world on this very floor in … [Read more...] about LeBron And Steph Were Born Here: I Gain Admittance To The Akron Maternity Unit The Two Have Made Famous.
