The stories we are covering and plan to post today:

In US news ...

Ron Scherer in New York reports on the views of 50 prominent economic forecasters who see the US economy finally stabilizing and say the recession should end by fall.

• Has North Korea gone too far this time? Howard LaFranchi in Washington looks at whether the Hermit Kingdom has tipped the international community over the edge to a tougher stance: more sanctions and other efforts to manage a long-term “bad apple,” less cajoling and six-party talks.

Mark Trumbull looks at why bankruptcy has not been the disaster for Chrysler that many expected it would be. Can the same be true for GM, if it files for bankruptcy too?

Mike Farrell reports on the road ahead for California’s gay community, especially the issues that a “special class” of married gay couples will present for the community and for the state.
