Officials are scattering around the country as the congressional Memorial Day recess continues.

-- President Obama flies to Las Vegas this afternoon to headline a fundraiser for Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.), above, tonight at Caesars Palace. No word yet on whether the president will clarify his previous comments about how bailed-out corporations should not schedule junkets in the gambling mecca.

-- Vice President Biden and his wife, Jill Biden, visit Colorado today. He hosts a meeting of the Middle Class Task Force in Denver while she visits a community college in Aurora as part of her work to support the nation's community colleges. The vice president gives the commencement address at the Air Force Academy in Boulder tomorrow.

-- Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano visits the Fort Street Cargo Facility in Detroit today and will meet with her Canadian counterparts to discuss border and business issues. The visit comes before the June 1 start of an initiative that requires a passport or special driver's license for everyone entering the United States from Canada.

-- Continuing the "anywhere but Washington" theme, Commerce Secretary Gary Locke holds an event with California officials in Sacramento to raise awareness about the June 12 transition to digital television. He then headlines a dinner at the Asian Pacific Islander Policy Summit.
