There's also some news about a device that is being taken off the shelves: Walmart will no longer sell the Amazon Kindle. European leaders are meeting in Rome today. The continent has been in a state of relative calm for a couple of weeks, so what are those troubled nation's talking about today? And new Census figures show good news and bad news for the state of California.
