From the Marketplace Datebook, here’s what’s coming up April 15:

  • The National Association of Homebuilders reports on builder confidence in the single family housing market.
  • Did consumers pay more or less for stuff in March than they did in February? The Labor Department issues its Consumer Price Index.
  • On April 15, 1912 the Titanic sank after a fatal run-in with an iceberg.
  • Federal tax returns need to be postmarked by tomorrow. Some post offices have extended hours to accommodate procrastinators. Sounds like fun.
  • And here’s some news with teeth. A ceremony at the Smithsonian’s Natural History Museum marks the arrival of a nearly-complete Tyrannosaurus rex fossil. I see a future of selfie’s with T rex.
