Glued to gavel-to-gavel convention coverage on cable news? Then you surely know that Hillary and Chelsea Clinton just did a walk-through at the Pepsi Center. But did you know:

“Pakistan’s governing coalitions splits”

“Car bomb kills at least 25 in Diyala provence [of Iraq]”

“North Korea Makes Plutonium Threat”

And, in news that would be preoccupying cable channels were there nothing going on in Denver (something will happen there, later, right?):

“Hurricane Heads For Haiti”

“Caylee’s mom wanted to give her up for adoption”
