>> Specialist Jeremy Morlock appeared in court yesterday as part of the trial of five soldiers accused of killing Afghan civilians. Leaked tapes show Morlock and another soldier separately giving accounts that their sergeant, Calvin Gibbs, is a batshit crazy murderer. Other testimony says that Morlock's unit was consumed with drug use. Morlock faces either court martial or death sentence. It seems hard to determine what's murder and what's war. (the New York Times)

>> Tricky White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is expected to step down as soon as this Friday, and Obama isn't looking outside his inner circle for a replacement. The short list includes Deputy Chief of Staff Pete Rouse, Deputy National Security Adviser Tom Donilon and Joe Biden's aide Ron Klain. Change we can't believe in. (Politico)

>> The Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life found that of the 3,400 Americans surveyed, half of them answered 32 questions about the Bible, Christianity and other world religions incorrectly, and many answered questions about their own faith incorrectly. Atheists, Jews and Mormons outperformed all other surveyed groups. How did atheists become so informed, you ask? American Atheists president said, "I have a Bible to my daughter. That's how you make atheists." (the New York Times)

>> The MacArthur Foundation awarded its $500,000 "genius grants" to 23 recipients, including The Wire creator David Simon. Simon said, "Obviously I'm very grateful ... [but] to be blunt, I'm in the entertainment industry ... and my contracts are well-funded right now." Give it to me! (the Wall Street Journal)

>> And finally: Utah police are investigating Kody Brown for felon bigamy. How were the authorities tipped off to this illegal behavior? Brown is the star of the new TLC reality show Sister Wives, which nationally televises his life with multiple wives. Those dirty cops! (People)
