The annual White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday offered a rare appearance by the entire first family: the president, the first lady, daughters Malia and Sasha, and grandmother Marian Robinson. Protocol dictated that the Easter Bunny was announced first, just before the first family appeared on the South Portico. First Lady Michelle Obama, the official hostess, was introduced by the president as someone who is "doing extraordinary work” and “also keeping me in line.” She welcomed guests by saying, “It’s a beautiful day just for you” and urging them to get going by rolling eggs, doing yoga and trying out an obstacle course.

Meredith Vieira and Katie Couric cracked raunchy jokes about "Today" host Matt Lauer on Friday as he was roasted by the New York Friars Club, but the hit of the annual charity event was a surprise guest: Tom Cruise.

On Monday, a 58-year-old Queens man named Ki-Suk Han was killed when an unknown assailant pushed him off the platform at Manhattan's 49 th Street subway station. It was one of those stories that strikes fear into the heart of every New Yorker, and the controversial image on the cover of Tuesday's New York Post - taken by an onlooker in the last desperate seconds of Han's life - only compounded the horror of the incident. Matt Lauer opted to show the New York Post cover to “Today” viewers Tuesday morning, as well as a second image of Han from inside the paper.

Walter Mosley's latest, "When the Thrill Is Gone," is the third installment (after "The Long Fall" and "Known to Evil") in the series featuring Leonid McGill, a tough, philosophic African American private detective who plies his perilous trade in today's New York City. The book is as complex and thoughtful as its narrator-hero and is also smartly paced, well plotted and elegantly written. And yet, when compared to the author's initial, career-igniting novels about Easy Rawlins, it seems to lack a key ingredient: originality.

Ann Curry will leave "Today" on Thursday -- but it doesn't sound like she'll be leaving with a smile. In an interview with USA Today, the 55-year-old newswoman confirmed that she will exit as cohost of the NBC morning news show and that the departure was most definitely not voluntary. Rumors have swirled about her tenure since earlier this year and exploded earlier this month after the New York Times reported that NBC executives were preparing to push her out. "I don't know who has been behind the leaks, but no question they've hurt deeply," Curry was quoted as saying.
