Today's edition of quick hits:
* The reports and images out of Oklahoma are simply heartbreaking.
* The latest from Moore: "Emergency crews in Oklahoma picked through neighborhoods without recognizable streets Tuesday in a grim, house-by-house search of the blasted-out husk of a city left behind by a ferocious tornado. Authorities lowered the death toll to 24, less than half the figure they gave in the initial chaos after the twister, but there was still no full accounting of those missing. Nine of the dead were children, including seven in a flattened elementary school."
* As big as they get: "The massive, mile-wide tornado that ravaged Oklahoma City suburbs on Tuesday with peak winds of over 200 miles per hour has been rated an 'EF5' by the National Weather Service."
* Lois Lerner's lawyers gave her obvious advice: "A top IRS official scheduled to testify Wednesday before the House Oversight committee has notified Congress that she will invoke the Fifth Amendment and refuse to answer questions."
* Immigration: "Sens. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) struck a deal Tuesday on visas for high-skilled workers, a major breakthrough for the Senate immigration reform bill. The deal paves the way for Hatch, the most senior member of the Senate Republican Conference, to support the immigration legislation pending in the Judiciary Committee."
* The images we will not see: "Photos of American military personnel burying Osama bin Laden will remain classified, a federal appeals court ruled Tuesday. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit sided with the government in finding that the release of postmortem images of the founder and leader of al-Qaeda could cause 'exceptionally grave harm' to Americans."
* Gallup: "U.S. Economic Confidence Reaches Five-Year Weekly High."
* Josh Marshall has an unexpected take on James Rosen: "It's difficult for me not to be more shocked by the self-interested preening of fellow journalists over a comically inept reporter and source than the arguable dangers this episode holds for press freedoms. Indeed, I've failed. I can't."
* Dear Kirsten Powers, please don't compare Fox News to Holocaust victims.
* And the NRA is outraged by the violence that Hollywood peddles and uses to poison our culture. On the other hand, the NRA also thinks violent movies are "cool." Good to know.
