Long accuser speaks out - One of the young men who has accused a Georgia pastor of sexual coercion told Atlanta television station WAGA that he wanted to send a message to Bishop Eddie Long: "You are not a man. You are a monster."
Jamal Parris, a former church employee and personal assistant to Long, filed one of four lawsuits last week accusing the Baptist televangelist of coercing young male church members into having sex with him.
Lockerbie bomber hearing - The U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee will hold a hearing Wednesday on the circumstances surrounding the release of convicted Pan Am Flight 103 bomber Abdelbasset al-Megrahi from a Scottish prison last year.
The Scottish government released al-Megrahi just over a year ago on the grounds that he had cancer and was not likely to live more than three more months. President Obama's assistant on homeland security and counter-terrorism, John Brennan, called the release "unfortunate and inappropriate." Democratic Sens. Robert Menendez and Frank Lautenberg noted that al-Megrahi was given three months to live when he was released, but is still alive.
Middle growing more militant - As Republicans shift more to the right and Democrats to the left, those left in the middle are wondering where to find the group that best represents them. Right now, there isn’t one, and centrists might do the only thing that they can to make themselves heard: stay away from the polls.
Tom Foreman writes that the political polarization really began with Ross Perot’s 1992 presidential campaign, in which the independent candidate got 18 percent of the vote, mainly from Republicans.
Tech rock stars - Who’s the CEO of Coca-Cola? How about General Motors, General Electric or General Mills? Got nothing? Well try this: Who’s the guy in the black mock turtleneck who runs Apple? Or the richest man in the United States, who started Microsoft before turning to a life of philanthropy? If you’re like us, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates weren’t tough to figure out. (Sorry, Muhtar Kent, Daniel Akerson, Jeff Immelt and Ken Powell.)
For good or ill, tech industry CEOs — like Mark Zuckerberg, the Facebook creator who’s featured in this week’s “The Social Network” — often end up being associated with their products in ways bosses from other industries aren’t. CNN's Doug Gross takes a look at today's tech rock stars.
