Slate's Scott Shuger found that although USAT led with the schoolyard shooting in Arkansas, there was other news out there. The NYT led with a green-card snafu at INS, and WP and LAT went with President Clinton's sounded-awfully-like-an-apology-but-wasn't remarks in Uganda over how the U.S. "wronged" Africa with the slave trade. Apparently the comments were impromptu, and are giving aides fits.

Shuger mulls the President's tendency to get carried away by the moment, then wonders "how long it will be before one of Clinton's critics complains that he apologizes for things he didn't do, instead of apologizing for things he did."
