Here’s what I’m reading up on this morning: 

  • Two 12-year-old girls are being charged as adults for stabbing their friend for "Slender Man," a fictional Internet character.
  • Tyson Foods and Pilgrim’s Pride (yes, there’s a company called that) are in a bidding war to take Hillshire Brands, which is itself trying to acquire Pinnacle Foods.  
  • Donald Sterling faces a lawsuit for sexual harassment and racist slurs.
