Wall Street not selling off, a shooting in LA airport, a drone takes out a Taliban leader, insurance companies cancel millions of health policies because of Obamacare and Halloween zombies takeover the subways of New York City — just another day in the USA!

My son Marty was there to race at the time, and after training another year for this marathon, it looks he’ll be running. Friday’s temperature was 22 degrees and it’s raining but Sunday will be a brisk 2-11 degrees and sunny!
