Morning Express with Robin Meade

A fast, personal, and smart blend of all the news you want in the morning. We call it "News in the Fast Lane." So buckle up.

Watch George Zimmerman's bond hearing LIVE: 9am ET/6PT on HLN

Good morning. Robin is off today. Natasha Curry leads us into the weekend.

Watch HLN this morning. We'll be going live to a courtroom in Sanford, Florida, as the man who shot Trayvon Martin asks a judge to release him from jail. Martin's family will be there. There's no guarantee a judge will grant the request. Aside from the legal issues, there are concerns about George Zimmerman's safety.
We're looking for more secret service agents to exit stage left today. And you'll want to check out the controversial Facebook page of one of the agents who's been in trouble over the prostitution scandal.
It was 30 years ago that little Etan Patz's photograph was plastered on milk cartons across the country. It was a dramatic shift in the way authorities would search for missing children. And now, decades later, police are using jackhammers to tear apart the New York basement of a man who met the boy the day before he disappeared. Cadaver dogs have picked up a scent.

Measles was supposed to be gone. It's not. We've got the details.
Starbucks is "transitioning away" from bugs in two drinks. What?!
Our Country Votes:
There's more chatter about who might share the ticket with Mitt Romney. We'll catch you up.
Also this morning... four Americans are dead in a chopper crash in Afghanistan... and remember that report about all the phone calls and text messages in the Bobby Petrino affair? You'll have one question today: Who can type that much?
