In reverse order of importance:
Obama said a woman looked good and then apologized. Glad we got that off our chest, America.
Megapastor Rick Warren’s son committed suicide. People offered condolences; well, mostly.
Prolific film critic Rogert Ebert died. People passed around quotes of movies he really hated, although that doesn’t really give you a fair snapshot of his work.
Disney shut down LucasArts.
The NCAA continued to play “March Madness” basketball games even though it was April. Somebody broke a leg very unpleasantly. Based on my Twitter feed I think the final game was last night but I’m not sure. Also, Major League Baseball started another season.
Bitcoin got more popular. I blogged about it.
Elon Musk’s electric car company Tesla reported a profitable quarter for the first time ever. That’s very good news, because companies generally need those to keep going.
Somebody leaked a bunch of data about rich people who hide money (mostly legally?) in offshore tax havens. This was a juicy find for the kinds of non-rich people that like juicy details about rich people.
North Korea continued to make threats, throw temper tantrums, and… move missile launchers?
A few more people in China got sick and/or died from that new virus. I would say the should-i-freakout-about-this-and-how-much scale is up from 0.001 to 0.002.
China almost used a drone to get a bad guy but didn’t.
