|Delta jet skids off runway during snowstorm at NY airport|
By Laila Kearney NEW YORK (Reuters) - A Delta Air Lines Inc jet landing during a snowstorm at New York's LaGuardia Airport on Thursday slid off the runway and struck a fence before coming to rest on a snow-covered embankment just feet from the frigid waters of Flushing Bay. None of the 127 passengers and five crew members were seriously injured as Delta flight 1086 from Atlanta skidded on the tarmac at about 11 a.m. EST (1600 GMT). LaGuardia, the smallest of the New York area's three major airports, was immediately closed after the mishap. Hundreds of flights were canceled at LaGuardia, compounding weather-related travel disruptions in many parts of the country.

Michael Brown's parents will file a wrongful death civil lawsuit against Ferguson, Missouri and the white police officer who shot dead the unarmed 18-year-old black man last August in the St. Louis suburb, a family attorney said on Thursday. He did not have to kill Michael Brown," attorney Daryl Parks said of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. The announcement came a day after the U.S. Justice Department cleared Wilson of any civil rights violations in the shooting but said it found racial bias and a pattern of discriminatory and illegal actions against African-Americans by the Ferguson Police Department.

|Matt Bai: Biden should run. Now|
The handicapping crowd has never taken Joe Biden all that seriously as a foil to Hillary Clinton in a presidential run. But he’s a middle-class champion who makes the case for economic fairness with more conviction than Clinton and less vitriol than Elizabeth Warren. He’s a serious thinker on foreign policy who opposes rampant interventionism without sounding like a pacifist. He more than holds his own as a debater. And he has nothing to lose by making one last run before riding the Amtrak back to Delaware for good.
