Good Morning.

Here’s a roundup of the top news stories so far today:

One day after Moammar Gadhafi’s death, Libya is celebrating. But questions persist over exactly how he died — and how to bury him.

The Texas Rangers evened the World Series at one game apiece, beating the Cardinals in St. Louis after a ninth-inning rally. Game 3 will be played in Texas Saturday night.

The U.S. Senate blocked a key component of President Obama’s jobs proposal late Thursday. In a test vote, the chamber voted 50-50 on the bill. The Washington Post says the $35 billion measure would have bolstered the hiring of teachers and public safety personnel.

Details are emerging from an upcoming biography of Steve Jobs, by Walter Isaacson (who will be appearing on 60 Minutes Sunday). Themes include his efforts to beat cancer, a chance meeting with his biological father (CBS), and his rivalries in the technology world — particularly with Google (Apple Insider).

And in Thailand, flood waters still threaten Bangkok, with more rain forecast for next week (Reuters). A separate report by Asia One notes that the country’s auto industry may lose 100,000 cars to the deluge. [Copyright 2011 National Public Radio]
