Toyota Halt Sales Because Their Accelerator Pedals Get Stuck
Well sometimes anyway. That news, and previews of Obama's speech later today dominate the front pages. Our friend John Edwards also gets a look in, as do those pesky Republican kids who got arrested yesterday.
The generalized anger at Obama is also spilling out at Tim Geithner, according to a couple of stories today. The Daily News got a look at John Edwards' aide Andrew Young's book, and lead with the revelations, and the Washington Post have another excellent exclusive on the US role in fighting militants in Yemen.
- The New York Times examine the potential sale of St. Vincent's hospital.
- The LA Times have a look at another way in which Botox can kill.
- And the Wall Street Journalcall the economic recovery a 'bullwhip' — as in we're about to get hit again.
Disclosure: I freelance write and report for newspapers that are included in this roundup. Where there is a direct conflict of interest I will make it clear.
The New York Times: reports that Obama will set up his own panel on national debt.

There's also a story from Haiti, and a look at the legal battles over climate change.
