NBC News reports the earthquake that struck Los Angeles damaged only one building on Monday. The jolt was sudden and sharp. The earthquake flipped the Gallup Organization's office building upside down and now President Obama's approval rating is 83 percent.

Los Angeles was awakened by a sharp earthquake Monday centered in Sepulveda Pass leading into the San Fernando Valley in early morning. How sharp was the jolt? An hour later, the Hollywood Bowl announced that this weekend's God is Dead rally has been canceled.

New York held a St. Patrick's Day Parade for Irish Americans and fellow revelers. It's always a day of drinking, singing, fighting, biting, kissing and anonymous sex. St. Patrick's Day is the worst day of the year in New York, Boston and Chicago not to have all your shots.

President Obama ripped Sunday's election when Crimea's people voted to leave Ukraine and join Russia by a 97 percent margin. He wasn't the only world leader who disrespected the vote. North Korea's Kim Jung Un called it a victory by the slimmest of margins.

President Obama froze the assets of seven top Russian officials and slapped U.S. sanctions against Russia along with EU sanctions. If you're the U.S. astronaut about the Space Station, you've got to be worried about the sanctions against Russia, considering they are your only ride home.
