• Sarah Palin isn’t happy that Michelle Obama invited Common to participate in “An Evening of Poetry” Wednesday. “Oh lovely, White House,” she tweeted early Tuesday, refering to the Chicago performer’s lyrics; Fox News called him a “vile rapper.” Common seemed amused by the flap: “So apparently Sarah Palin and Fox News doesn’t like me,” he tweeted, then “LOL!” He’ll appear with Billy Collins, Elizabeth Alexander, Rita Dove, and Jill Scott.

• After a week’s delay, the royal honeymoon in under way.
