>> Two officers who pepper sprayed peaceful Occupy protesters at the University of California, Davis, have been placed on administrative leave, but the shocking video has already made rounds on the Internet. The police freely sprayed the demonstrators who were calmly sitting on the sidewalk with linked arms. I smell a meme. (the NY Times)

>> Fourteen-year-old Brandon McInerney of Ventura County, Calif., has "agreed to spend the next 21 years in prison" for fatally shooting a gay middle-school classmate. McInerney will be behind bars until he is 38. I'm so glad he was so agreeable. (LA Times)

>> Bonuses for bankers will be down from the average of $128,530 as the financial industry lost 200,000 jobs this past year. Financial jobs for people ages 20 to 34 have fallen by 25 percent since 2008, though jobs for employees over 55 have only fallen by 11 percent. That is so sad. Not. (DealBook)

>> And finally, things that happened in South Korea today: An opposition lawmaker doused his rivals in tear gas as ruling party lawmakers forced their way on the National Assembly floor. At least their Congress gets stuff done. (AP)
