  1. Paul Ryan Backs Romney: Is Paul Ryan riding high from his budget victory? The conservative Wisconsin Republican congressman endorsed Mitt Romney for president on Fox and Friends Friday morning. 
  2. Funeral Director Contradicts ZimmermanThe funeral director who prepared Trayvon Martin’s body said Friday there was “no physical signs like there had been a scuffle” on the teenager—a key part of George Zimmerman’s claim that he shot and killed Trayvon in self-defense. “The hands—I didn’t see any knuckles, bruises or what have you,” said Richard Kurtz. Isn’t this what police are supposed to determine? 
  3. Wife: Bin Laden Fathered Four Kids: What a “martyr.” Osama bin Laden apparently didn’t have such a bad experience on the run, since he had time to father four children, and owned five houses that he moved among, according to The New York Times, which cited a testimony given by bin Laden’s youngest wife to Pakistani investigators.
  4. Arrest Made in Pasadena Shooting: Pasadena police officers are being questioned over the shooting death of an unarmed 19-year-old college student on Saturday night in Pasadena, California. Kendrec McDade was killed on a dark, narrow street, and reports say no light was turned on to see what was happening. 
  5. France Arrests 19 Radical Suspects: French police on Friday arrested 19 people described as radical Islamists as part of an operation targeting suspected jihadist networks in a number of cities. President Nicolas Sarkozy said in an interview with Europe1 radio that he was mounting a crackdown after self-proclaimed al Qaeda member Mohamed Merah killed seven people in the Toulouse area before being shot dead last week.
