Obama says borrowed lines not a big deal
Sen. Barack Obama said Monday that he doesn't think it's a big deal that he borrowed lines from his friend Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, although he probably should have given him credit. Patrick said during his gubernatorial campaign a year and a half ago that words matter, like "I have a dream" and "all men are created equal." Obama used the same lines Saturday night in Wisconsin. Obama said that Patrick suggested he use the lines to respond to Hillary Rodham Clinton's suggestion that Obama is more of a talker than a doer.

Huckabee's persistence frustrates some in GOP
With the Republican nomination effectively out of reach, Mike Huckabee continues to campaign nationwide in an apparent pursuit of other goals even as he insists that John McCain does not yet have a lock on the GOP prize. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee made a campaign stop at a pancake restaurant in Brookfield, Wis., last week. Wisconsin's Republican presidential primary is tomorrow. Increasingly, party professionals are starting to suggest that the former Arkansas governor has outlived his welcome.  
While acknowledging Huckabee has been a refreshingly new face in American politics, some Republicans are concerned that his refusal to accept the inevitable might inflict damage on McCain by complicating the Arizona senator's already formidable task of unifying his party.

Atlantis and crew homeward bound
Atlantis and its seven-man crew were homeward bound after leaving the international space station and checking the thermal casing of their ship Monday for the fiery ride back to Earth.
The space shuttle is due back Wednesday. Good weather is expected at Cape Canaveral, but if that changes, NASA will guide Atlantis to the backup touchdown site in California to give the military time enough time to shoot down a damaged spy satellite without endangering the shuttle.

Victims of campus shooting mourned
Catalina Garcia, the youngest of four children, was studying to be a teacher. Now, her family is preparing to lay her to rest. Garcia, 20, was one of five young people slain last week at Northern Illinois University by a gunman whose girlfriend said he recently stopped taking his antidepressants. At a memorial service for Garcia on Sunday, hundreds of friends, family and well wishers filled a suburban Chicago funeral home to pay their respects. One young woman wore a homemade, pink and white T-shirt that read, "R.I.P. Cathy."

Ga. refinery had earlier dust explosion
Dust that collected in a piece of safety equipment caused a small explosion at a sugar refinery weeks before the deadly blast that killed nine workers, a federal investigator said Sunday. Stephen Selk, investigations manager for the U.S. Chemical Safety Board, had few details about the previous explosion at the Imperial Sugar refinery in Port Wentworth. He could not say whether the earlier blast contributed to the massive explosion Feb. 7.
"It is far too early to reach conclusions about the relationship between that event and this one," Selk said.
