    BOSTON (CBS) – One person disappointed by Gov. Deval Patrick’s decision to name Mo Cowan as interim U.S. Senator is former Congressman Barney Frank. Earlier this month, Frank openly lobbied for the position, saying “I think I’m better prepared than most people.” Patrick obviously felt differently and chose Cowan, his former Chief of Staff, who has no previous experience holding elected office. Frank issued this terse statement Wednesday: “I know Mr. Cowan is committed to working hard and in socially-fair and economically-efficient manner toward resolving pending budget issues.” “I now look forward to working for the election of Ed Markey...

    Gov. Deval Patrick's pick for interim U.S. senator, William "Mo" Cowan, has been a loyal donor to Patrick and other Democrats with one exception -- a Republican Democrats love to hate: Mitt Romney. Cowan, then an attorney at Mintz Levin, contributed at least $200 to Romney's 2002 gubernatorial campaign, according to Massachusetts campaign finance records. Cowan did not give money to Romney's Democratic opponent, Shannon O'Brien, records show.

    It will mark the first time armed deputies will travel with New Mexico Department of Agriculture inspectors, who certify the scales used to weigh livestock, Luna County Sheriff Raymond Cobos said. "These scales that the ranchers use to ship their cattle are in isolated areas," Cobos told "And the administration decided since those inspectors and personnel are not armed, they wanted to be able to concentrate on their work without worrying about their security."

    When it comes to socially-conservative groups media outlets like to cover the scandals instead of the celebrations. That's exactly what NBC did to the Boy Scouts of America which had its 100th anniversary Jan. 25. NBC "Nightly News" completely ignored the anniversary, but did remember to cover Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day during that broadcast. But NBC will find time for scandal. On April 1, NBC's "Today" reported that the Boy Scouts are at the center of a $25 million lawsuit tied to an alleged cover-up of thousands of sexual abuse cases. The same network that found the group so unimportant...
