Tuesday news roundup
Happy Tuesday! It's already hot and humid in Washington. Today I am wrapping up a couple of stories for the paper.
What I am reading:
* Blue collar is the new white collar: A growing number of the college-educated are trading in theses and cubicles for lucrative trade jobs like plumbing and carpentry.
* Memorable high school graduation: A fist-fight broke out at a Minnesota high school graduation -- and a camera-wielding parent caught it all on tape, posted it to YouTube.
* Entertaining interns: Politics Daily contributor Matt Vasilogambros warns interns not to make fools of themselves, because everyone is waiting for them to make fools of themselves.
* Shrinking Big 12: Kansas State basketball coach Frank Martin says he doesn't care about Nebraska and Colorado. "The Big 12 is a great league that just got better," he told The Kansas City Star.
* Track the oil spill: If you haven't yet, check out this interesting graphic on the New York Times Web site that lets you watch how the oil in the Gulf spread day-by-day.
Need plans for tonight?
* Intern Takeover Tuesdays at McFaddens: Every Tuesday night is intern night at McFaddens Restaurant and Saloon in Foggy Bottom. Tonight that means $1 drafts from 9 p.m. until close for all interns and college students, plus the chance to win tickets to summer concerts.
* Free concert on Pennsylvania Avenue: Listen to the U.S. Navy Band & Sea Chanters outside the Archives-Navy Memorial Metro Station starting at 8 p.m.
