Searchers rescued 4-year-old Jacob from the mud within hours. CBS News has video of the helicopter rescue in Oso, Washington.

Jacob’s mom, Jonielle, was not at home during the devastating Washington mudslide and is also safe. But her husband, Navy Chief Petty Officer Billy Spillers, and three other children, Brooke, Kaylee and Javon, are still among the missing.

Billy’s cousin, Kevin Ryce, reportedly traveled from Pennsylvania to support the family and assist with the search.

“You have to be out here with them, no matter what,” Ryce told reporter Linda Byron.

Some people notice these 3 words, 1 comedy gold photo sum up Biden’s announcement

Snicker.

Yes, but there is still much mockery to be had. Fox News’ Andrea Tantaros hilariously kicked it off. And now Twitter users have grasped onto 3 words from Biden’s announcement: “Window has closed.”

Hmm. Speaking of windows …

Best photo ever? It really is up there.

Olympic torchbearer claims ‘racist’ photo of Obamas the fault of a hacker

http://twitter.com/#!/martynziegler/status/432922375022055424

Irina Rodnina, the three time Olympic figure skating gold medalist and Russian MP who helped light the cauldron at the opening ceremony of the Sochi Games, continues to be the subject of controversy. Rodnina had been accused of tweeting a “shockingly racist picture” of the Obamas last year. The tweet had been deleted but screen shots are still out there.

Rodnina today claimed the tweet was the result of her Twitter account being hacked:

For the most part, people aren’t buying the “hacked” claim:

Previously, Rodnina had defended herself against criticism of the tweet she now claims was due to a hacker by saying “freedom of speech is freedom of speech.”
