Brief news from elsewhere:

Sounds like the Murdoch divorce is about to get serious: Wendi Murdoch has upgraded to a big-deal lawyer with a proven track record of helping spurned rich wives a good deal from their exes. (New York Times)

Barbara Bush (the younger one) heads to Uganda. Business, not pleasure. (New York Post)

Angelina Jolie is Hollywood’s highest-paid actress: $33 million last year. Oh yes: Even more so than Jennifer Lawrence ($24 million) And guess who’s still in the game at No. 4? Jennifer Aniston, who knew? (Forbes)
