Today hurts on the sleep meter, doesn't it? Bring on the caffeine, the flat iron, the spray-on wrinkle release for the non-ironing types with the wadded-up shirts. (We should get something like that for our faces. Ha!) Bring it all just as you are and be the most informed as you start your day.  Because Friday looks good on you.

Tons of intriguing new information in the Trayvon Martin case:

Martin's death was "ultimately avoidable" according to Sanford police. And the teenager did have a drug in his system.  See what else new is coming from the hundreds of newly released pages


Facebook stock goes on sale today, but instead of starting when the rest of the trading day does... we've learned there will be a delay.

Goodbye to a disco legend. Donna Summer was reportedly keeping the extent of her illness a secret.

Bees take over a baseball game. Crazy video.

Conan and Letterman gang up on Leno. Wow.  Reminds me of Jay and Dave’s legendary late-night wars of two decades ago.

And... police in Georgia are scrambling to find out who is targeting school buses in one district near Atlanta. There was a list with bus numbers and route times found at one scene.

Okay friends you're off and running for your Friday.


P.S. If your summer vacation includes a trip across the pond to London for the games, we'd like to talk to you about your trip! Shoot us an email at
