Good morning! Here’s what you missed over the weekend:

The Lead Story: The FBI recently revealed an extramarital affair between CIA Director David Petraeus and biographer Paula Broadwell, prompting the former’s resignation. The FBI has reportedly known about the affair since the summer but chose not to disclose it until now. 

Everything Else:

The LA Lakers have hired Mike D’Antoni as head coach.

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper to stoners: “Don’t break out the Cheetos” yet.

Fox News got it right when it mattered.

The newest Bond movie, Skyfall, made nearly $88 million this weekend, making it the best Bond debut ever.

The Long Read: Last week’s election will go down in history as the last time Republicans try to chalk together a victory by appealing primarily to white voters. What will the new GOP look like? The New Yorker‘s Ryan Lizza on how the platform will change.

The Weather: Today’s weather will feature the highest temperatures and most rainfall of the week. Expect party cloudy skies throughout the week with highs in the low 40s/50s. Those of you travelling 0n Friday and Saturday should have no problems with weather in Ohio.
