Read this: Chad Cordero’s family tragedy; Chris Brown’s ABC tantrum; Haley Barbour gets in fighting shape

(Dirk Shadd for The Washington Post)
Washington remembers Chad Cordero as the Nationals’ heroic young relief pitcher of 2005 — but now he’s a husband and dad whose family is grappling with the death of his baby daughter Tehya from SIDS last fall. Very sad story from our Sports colleague Barry Svrluga.

Chris Brown thought he could just promote his new CD on “Good Morning America,” but Robin Roberts insisted on asking him about, you know, the Rihanna thing — and he flew into an off-camera tantrum, ABC now confirms. Lisa de Moraes has all the details.

Watch out — Haley Barbour is trying to steal your extra salad dressing. Mississippi’s governor and former fat-cat lobbyist is looking like less of a fat cat these days: He’s dropped 20 pounds in preparation for a presidential run that Karen Tumulty thinks might have a better shot than you’d expect. Voters don’t know him, but “the people who write the checks and run the party machinery” love him.
