Weekend Reading: Sequester, UPK, Teachers Shooting Staff

What'd you miss over the weekend?  Not much -- a few sequester stories, some universal preschool back and forth, the weekly Bloomberg and American Public Radio podcasts, and -- my favorite -- news that a school worker in Texas was shot during (you guessed it) a post-Newtown gun training session for educators.
