Top Stories: Jobs Bill; Egyptian Violence; Liberian Election

Good morning.

The top story of the day so far, as we reported earlier, seems to be that "Obama's Jobs Bill Is Expected To Hit Roadblock Today In Senate."

On a much less serious note, there's also the news that the ongoing labor dispute between players and owners has led to the cancellation of the first two weeks of the NBA season.
