: Admit it: The GOP debates have been a lot more fun. The Donald and Co. hurl insults and argue about the size of their hands. The Democrats only offer sober policy discussions. Doesn't mean there weren't fireworks last night in Flint
. Hillary ripped Bernie over his opposition to the auto bailout; Bernie slammed Hillary over her Wall Street ties. They even interrupted each other! Maybe there's fire in the Dems' belly after all. Here's the debate in 90 seconds
, the five takeaways
and who was lying
And on the seventh day...
: The day after Super Saturday was not a day of rest. The Dems debated (see above). The GOP candidates got face time on the Sunday talk shows (Ted Cruz), picked up endorsements
(John Kasich) and spoke out in favor of torture
(yes, The Donald). There was even actual voting
by actual voters yesterday: the Maine caucuses went to Bernie Sanders, while Marco Rubio won the Puerto Rico primary. He now heads back to Florida, otherwise known as his last stand
: Condolences and tributes poured in yesterday as word got out that former first lady Nancy Reagan had died
. She was remembered as much for her devotion to husband Ronald Reagan as she was for her love of country. Many noted that her death seemed to mark the end of an era
: "With the passing of Nancy Reagan, we say a final goodbye to the days of Ronald Reagan," 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney wrote on Facebook.
: Even in a country subjected to countless acts of violence, this one sticks out
. Sixteen people, including four nuns, were killed on Friday at a home for the elderly in Yemen. The victims were handcuffed and shot in the head. Yesterday, Pope Francis called the nuns -- part of a group founded by Mother Teresa -- martyrs and prayed for the other victims. No word on who's responsible. But an al Qaeda-affiliated group in the country says don't look at them, stating that "it's not our way of fight."
Stopping the flow
: A step in the right direction or too little, too late? That's what everyone's wondering as a summit on the migrant crisis
gets underway today in Brussels. Heads of government from the EU will meet with Turkey's Prime Minister to talk about staunching the flood of migrants into Europe, many of whom have traveled through Turkey. More than 130,000 refugees crossed the Mediterranean Sea to Europe so far this year; more than 400 of those have died along the way.
