Here are some stories we’ve been reading today: 

-USA Today is reporting today that several of the entities who were contributing to a $1 million reward for the capture of Christopher Dorner, who went on a 10-day shooting spree in California last month, have withdrawn their contribution. However, the Los Angeles Police Department says it will pay its portion of the reward. 

-According to the New York Times, a disagreement between a spam fighting group and a web hosting company has caused widespread slowdowns and congestion on the internet the past several days, becoming one of the largest computer attacks on the internet.

-MSNBC reports that despite an emphasis on people dying in hospice or at home, the number of people who died in the hospital fell only 8 percent in the last 10 years.
