All three presidential candidates’ passport files have been breached. If big names are getting a look from contractors, are the rest of us also being checked out? So many questions today, including:
– If the computers immediately flagged the breaches, why did it take so long to let Clinton, McCain and Obama know?
– How did these contractors get access?
– What information is in the files and how much did they see?
– Is this politically motivated?
– What other files were these contractors checking out?
Some answers are available for you HERE. For the rest, we’ll see you tonight at 10p ET.
One Colorado city is under a state of emergency after a local salmonella outbreak was linked to its tap water. More than 130 people have fallen ill, from infants to the elderly; seven people are still in the hospital. CHECK OUT THE STORY
Remember the AP study on water a couple of weeks ago? Tap water in 24 metropolitan areas comes with more than just hydrogen and oxygen; anti-depressants, sex hormones, and antibiotics were also found in the water. I try to opt for tap water when I can to cut back on the waste from bottled water, but I admit that study gave me pause, even after being assured the H2O was OK to drink. After reading the story of Alamosa, CO, I’m a little leery again. The town is shutting down its water supply for up to two weeks to clean and disinfect it… though they still don’t know how the salmonella got into the water supply. Great.
The "Grande Dame of Piano Jazz" just celebrated her 90th birthday with two sets at Jazz at Lincoln Center and tributes from some of music’s biggest names. Not only is Marian McPartland still playing, she also has a radio show on NPR and isn’t even close to slowing down. I love her energy, her music, her zest. THIS is who I want to be at 90.
