The biggest story of the week is the heroic rescue of three kidnapped women in Cleveland, who were held captive for a decade. A video of their rescuer, Charles Ramsey, has gone viral.

Caitlin Tiller brought her 3-month-old son and the school refused to include the photo because it promotes teen pregnancy.
