The headline of the day belongs to DC’s Express: TRUST DEFICIT – and finally I feel recognized “NOT JUST THE TEA PARTIERS” – seems I am now part of the 80%. It seems to be based on this poll

The survey found that just 22 percent of those questioned say they can trust Washington almost always or most of the time and just 19 percent say they are basically content with it.

(remember the phony disagreement between Obama and a general on Afghanistan? Troops were increased then)

The Iceland volcano is the star of most covers, with DC’s Express marvel of placement: The huge “GROUNDED” headline, has Obama looking in the distance towards planet Mars – maybe because the budget cuts and job losses to NASA

.WaPo wins for the best volcano photo and has good (if minuscule) news for gay couple – if sick, you count for something
