Four in the evening

1. The nonprofit news outlet ProPublica has joined forces with Marketplace to do a comparison of the patchwork unemployment insurance programs across the United States - don't get fired in Mississippi if you can help it. ProPublica

2. The California State Parks Foundation has launched a campaign to stop Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger from making real his threat to close up to 200 state parks as way to shave a little from the state's massive budget deficit. CSPF

3. The San Jose Mercury News has promoted Bert Robinson, 47, to be managing editor of the newspaper. He replaces David Satterfield, who left in November. SJMN

4. Another blow to the California ego: Census figures found the state ranks as the 16th lowest when it comes to Internet access for individuals. Capitol Alert
