  • In Washington, the Commerce Department reports on international trade for February.
  • The Senate Foreign Relations Committee receives a closed briefing on Russia.
  • Actor Marlon Brando was born on April 3, 1924. He would have been 90.
  • And some folks observe National Find a Rainbow Day. Don't want to go outside? Just dig in your box of crayons.

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
