Need to Know News: September 11 memorial opens to public; Obama to submit jobs plan to Congress

Each day, we here at "Piers Morgan Tonight" put together the news you need to know – from what happened last night to what will happen today.

For September 12, 2011 – President Barack Obama is ready to submit his jobs plan to Congress Monday, Social Security marks battle lines for CNN/Tea Party debate, Sam Stosur stuns Serena Williams...

• September 11 memorial opens to public: "The National September 11 Memorial opens to the public Monday - a decade and a day after terror attacks brought down the twin towers of the World Trade Center in lower Manhattan. The memorial opened a day early on Sunday only to victims' family members and those attending the commemoration service at ground zero."

• Obama to submit his jobs plan to Congress Monday: "President Barack Obama will take to the Rose Garden on Monday to make a pitch for his jobs creation plan and announce he is sending it to Congress later that evening, the White House said."

• Social Security marks the battle lines for CNN/Tea Party Debate: "A battle over Social Security launched last week between the top two GOP presidential contenders doesn't show any signs of quieting down as candidates prepare for round two at the first-ever CNN/Tea Party Republican Debate on Monday night. The debate, which will take place at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa, will also give the six other candidates on the stage a chance to change what many are portraying as a two-person race between Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney." The debate starts at 8pm ET on CNN.

Kenya pipeline explodes, killing dozens: "A fuel pipeline exploded in a densely populated Nairobi slum Monday morning, killing at least 55 people but likely more, police and Kenya Red Cross officials said. The explosion and ensuing fire flattened homes in the Sinai slum of Nairobi. Charred bodies were strewn throughout the wreckage and some were still bobbing in a stream that passes through the settlement Monday afternoon."

• Stosur stuns Serena in U.S. Open final: "Australia's Sam Stosur stared down the mighty Serena Williams - surpassing her not only in power and athleticism but also in competitive will and poise - and, improbably, won the women's final 6-2, 6-3 to claim the first major of her career."
