Did police find the O.J. Simpson murder weapon?

Last night's debate was the biggest disaster yet.

It is less Donald Trump being a con or foisting a con on the public as it is exploiting the con that is the GOP.

The teacher was no "victim." She has only herself to blame for her situation.

By going public, she guarantees she will never teach again.

Singer Gayle McCormick, 67, who gained a measure of fame as being the lead singer of a band called Smith, has died of cancer. She died on Tuesday.

A snip:

Smith had their biggest hit in 1969 with a cover of "Baby It's You," written by Burt Bacharach and originally performed by the Shirelles. On the strength of McCormick's soulful vocals, the recording rose to No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and became a certified gold record. "Baby It's You" was also covered by the Beatles and the Carpenters, but it was Smith's version that was later used by Quentin Tarantino in his 2007 film "Death Proof."

The GOP is in crisis mode, but it isn't about the likelihood of not getting the White House. My contention is the concern is about the down-ticket races for the House and the Senate.

Obituary: Country singer Joey Feek, 40, after a long, well-publicized battle with cancer:

Born Sept. 7, 1975, in Alexandra, Indiana, Feek moved to Nashville as a young woman to pursue a career in country music. Signed with Sony Records, she recorded two solo albums in 2000 and 2004, but neither saw release until 2007, when her second album, "Strong Enough To Cry," was released as a download only.
