- No automated messages from missing Boeing jet: sources
The Malaysian passenger jet that disappeared on Saturday did not make automatic contact with a flight data-monitoring system after vanishing from radar screens, two people familiar with the matter said. The Boeing 777-200ER is equipped with a maintenance computer capable of talking to the ground automatically through short messages known as ACARS. In the case of the Malaysia Airlines jet, however, investigators have no such evidence to help them discover what happened to the passenger plane, the people said. "There were no signals from ACARS from the time the aircraft disappeared," a source involved in the investigations said.

- How can jet disappear? In the ocean, it's not hard
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — In an age when people assume that any bit of information is just a click away, the thought that a jetliner could simply disappear over the ocean for more than two days is staggering. But Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 is hardly the first reminder of how big the seas are, and of how agonizing it can be to try to find something lost in them.
- Ted Cruz's Presidential Campaign Had a Bad Weekend with Conservatives
In theory, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz should be coming into this week triumphant, having won the blessing of his conservative peers at CPAC. By most accounts (including that of attendees) Cruz played second fiddle to Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul at the conference, suggesting that, over the short term, Cruz's far-right-or-fight strategy hasn't borne much fruit with mainstream conservatives in his party. Each year, the Conservative Political Action Conference holds a presidential straw poll. The results are generally fairly mainstream, despite the conference's efforts to represent the conservative wing of the Republican Party.

- Drunken groom fights with bride on jet, forces emergency landing
By Peter Polack GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands (Reuters) - A groom on his honeymoon got into a drunken argument with his bride aboard a flight form Atlanta to Costa Rica, forcing the Delta Air Lines aircraft to make an emergency landing on Grand Cayman island on Sunday night, authorities said. The U.S. citizen was escorted from the flight after it landed by Cayman Islands police and was being held in custody on a charge of drunk and disorderly conduct, according to Royal Cayman Islands Chief Inspector Raymond Christian. He did not name the bride or the groom involved in the incident other than to say the groom was a U.S. citizen. Delta spokeswoman Lindsay McDuff confirmed on Monday that a "disruptive customer" prompted the crew of flight 901 to divert to Grand Cayman.
