Stowaway in wheel well, 16, survives 5-hour flight from San Jose to Hawaii. (Some experts here are telling us that is simply impossible and this must be a hoax.) American wins Boston Marathon (no hoax); ferry captain's actions called "murderous," Sherpas may go on strike, and Miss America has bold teen's back. Happy Monday.

Ukraine is still unraveling, and Vlad Putin is making it very clear that he believes he has the right to use force there. South Korean ferry tragedy appears to have been compounded by orders to passengers to stay put, Gabriel Garcia Marquez is dead and Chelsea Clinton is pregnant. Happy Thursday.

Ukraine goes in shooting to take back an airport from Russian gunmen, and I for one am foreseeing a disastrous endgame. Boston honors marathon victims, robot sub resumes search for plane, Pistorius' excuse is 'I was scared,' and man shows up for court appearance in stolen car. Happy Tuesday.

Horrible accident near Chico kills 10 people as a big rig slams into a bus full of high school students. Kathleen Sebelius calls it quits, prosecutor calls Pistorius a liar, and chimps go wild, stage jailbreak. Happy Friday.

Afghan police commander guns down AP photographer and reporter in cold blood, killing the former. Mean people suck. Plus: Pinger finder deployed in search for plane's fading pings, DOJ investigating high-speed stock trading, modest job growth reported in March, and James Franco admits he propositioned a 17-year-old girl on social media, says he's "embarrassed" (which is better than "arrested"). Happy Friday.

Horrific ferry disaster in South Korea leaves nearly 300 people missing, most of them high schools. Plus: Russians carjack six Ukrainian armored vehicles, Pistorius defense expert gets a grilling, former city admin of Bell gets 12 years for corruption and Kim Jong Un-amused by British barbershop's joke. Happy Wednesday.

Pro-Russian thugs firebomb a police state in eastern Ukraine, which is unraveling fast. Kansas suspect in shooting of three at Jewish centers was a known white supremacist, 71 people killed in massive explosion at Nigeria bus park, and shortage of gefilte fish may portend a seder emergency. Happy Passover.

Two pings heard in the Indian Ocean are called the best lead yet in the hunt for Flight 370. Meanwhile, Russia appears to be poised to pull a Crimea in eastern Ukraine, Pistorius apologizes to Reeva's family, Rwanda marks grim anniversary and here's why calling the cops with product quality complaints is not always a good idea. Happy Monday.

Fort Hood shooter who killed three people and himself was being treated for depression, anxiety, insomnia and possibly PTSD. U.S. government tried to invade Cuba with "Cuban Twitter," Chile still rattled by aftershocks and .... chupacabra caged?? You gotta see this for yourself. Happy Thursday.
