Need to Know News: 18 tourists die in hot air balloon explosion in Egypt; Spending cuts showdown may drag on

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 February 26, 2013 – 18 tourists die in hot air balloon explosion in Egypt, spending cuts showdown may drag on, and "The Onion" apologizes for vulgar Quvenzhané Wallis tweet...

• 18 tourists die in hot air balloon explosion in Egypt: "The view from above southern Egypt is stunning, a contrast of beige desert valley giving way to green farmland. Tourists fill large baskets under hot air balloons to soak in the sight."

Spending cuts showdown may drag on: "Chances are slim that Congress will avert the automatic spending cuts before they take effect on Friday. It's more likely lawmakers will reach a deal to replace the cuts after they begin."

Blizzard batters U.S. heartland, spreads snowy mess into the Midwest: "Another week, another blizzard for the snow-weary Midwest. Gobs of wet, heavy snow plopped to the ground early Tuesday in the Kansas City area along the Kansas and Missouri border in what the National Weather Service called a 'crippling, historic blizzard.'"

• Vatican reveals Pope Benedict's new title: "With only two full days left of Pope Benedict XVI's papacy, more details emerged Tuesday of what the future holds both for the retiring pontiff and the cardinals who will choose his successor."

• The Onion apologizes for vulgar Quvenzhané Wallis tweet: "With the Oscars being handed out Sunday night in Los Angeles, The Onion called the child actress a derogatory term in a tweet that has since been deleted. And on Monday, The Onion responded with an apology."

    Thanks alot : ) for your post. I'd prefer to write my opinion that the price of car insurance varies from one insurance plan to another, due to the fact there are so many different issues which contribute to the overall cost. For example, the make and model of the car will have a massive bearing on the purchase price. A reliable outdated family car or truck will have a lower priced premium compared to a flashy sports car.
