The White House

Obama's cutest moment since the election? Not that we're keeping track. But a just-released White House photo shows him pretending (pretty dramatically) to be caught in the web of a miniature Spider-Man (the son of a White House staffer).

Argument over Sandy Hook ends in gunfire: An eastern-Missouri man is charged with armed criminal action and unlawful possession of a weapon after shooting at a fellow barbershop patron during a discussion about last week's mass shooting. Ridiculous as it is sad.

Rob Parker says, "I blew it": He's apologized for his racially charged and widely criticized remarks about Washington Redskins player Robert Griffin III.

2012 is the Year of Rihanna: That's what Hello Beautiful says. Agree?
