For June 30, 2011 – Obama and Romney are both in Pennsylvania today, the Senate is skipping vacation, the latest on the Casey Anthony trial...

• Pres. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are both in Pennsylvania today: "Mitt Romney will travel to Pennsylvania Thursday on the same day as President Obama in a political move to hit the president over his handling of the economy and a clear symbolic step as the frontrunner in the GOP presidential field...Meanwhile the president will attend two fundraisers for the Democratic National Committee also in Philadelphia."

• A stowaway slipped onto a cross-country flight: "Investigators have charged a man with being a stowaway after he allegedly took a flight from New York to Los Angeles, even though he didn't have a proper boarding pass and was not on the flight manifest. It wasn't until after Virgin America Flight 415 took off from John F. Kennedy International Airport on Friday that the airline discovered the man, identified as Olajide Oluwaseun Noibi, wasn't supposed to be on the flight, according to an FBI affidavit."

• And finally – Lindsay Lohan is free: "Lindsay Lohan was released from home confinement at 10:20 a.m. Wednesday, 35 days after she began serving her sentence for misdemeanor theft and probation violation, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County sheriff said Wednesday."
