DAVID GREENE, HOST:

This is MORNING EDITION from NPR News. Good morning, I'm David Greene. It has been almost three months now since a Malaysian Airlines jet disappeared with 239 people on board.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

This is MORNING EDITION from NPR News. Good morning. I'm David Greene. President Obama delivers the commencement address at West Point today.

Among the foreign policy challenges facing the president of late, Russia's annexation of Crimea and China's provocative moves in Asia. The president will try to describe a coherent approach to those challenges. But as NPR's Scott Horsley reports, this might not be an out-right Obama doctrine.

Bison Invade Wyoming Golf Course

Originally published on Tue May 27, 2014 6:57 am

This is NPR News.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep. A golf course in Wyoming has been invaded by bison. The one-ton animal sometimes damaged the greens, nevermind the brown. Officials tell the Jackson Hole News & Guide they tried to move the bison using sprinklers, but mostly golfers have to play around them. This could enliven other events on grass - boring baseball game?

GREENE: Make them play around bison.

INSKEEP: Want to enliven the World Cup?

GREENE: Bison.

At that point, a military dictator, Hosni Mubarak, was removed from power. At that time, it was NPR's Lourdes Garcia-Navarro in Cairo. She was witnessing all of the celebration.
