Reality Check Recap: April 14, 2014

Three people are dead after shootings at Jewish centers in Kansas. The suspect is a 73-year-old Missouri man who is a former KKK leader. Police aren’t labeling it a hate crime until they’ve done more investigations. A 14-year-old boy and his grandfather were killed outside a Jewish community center, and a woman was shot and killed at Jewish assisted living facility. Passover begins tonight.


Tomorrow is the first anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing. Boston mayor Deval Patrick promised that people commemorating the tragedy will be safe and secure. Three people were killed last year when two pressure-cooker bombs went off at the marathon’s finish line.



The pings are gone. It’s been six days since any sounds came from the suspected Malaysian Airlines flight in the Indian Ocean. So now, searchers are sending an underwater vehicle to use sonar to find the plane debris.



Bubba Watson has won the Masters.



And if you take naps, you’re going to die. A huge new study found that people to take a lot of naps are almost 33% more likely to die before age 65 than people who don’t, mainly from respiratory illnesses. If you find yourself needing a lot of naps, it’s probably worth going to a doctor: it could be an undiagnosed breathing problem.



And a restaurant in Chicago is charging $100 for a gourmet grilled cheese sandwich. The Ritz-Carlton’s sandwich includes gold flakes and Oregorn perigord white truffle aioli and a side of lobster macaroni and cheese. It’s only available during April, so book your flight to Chicago now….



And if you’re going to prom, I have a great idea for you: KFC is offering 100 fried chicken drumstick corsages. You get the corsage and then a $5 gift card to buy the drumstick, which then attaches to the corsage. But order fast! There are only 100 total.
