  3. Chris Wallace Sternly Fact Checks Stephen Miller: ‘How Is This A National Emergency?’ The Fox News Sunday host asked the White House senior policy adviser: “How is this a national emergency?” By Mary Papenfuss White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller tried mightily to bulldoze Chris Wallace of Fox News Sunday as the host sharply fact-checked him on President Donald Trump’s reasons for declaring a national emergency so he can build his border wall.

  5. Pretty funny video... Mike Pence Brought Greetings From Trump To Munich And No One Applauded The Trump administration is not popular with Munich Security Conference attendees. By Sara Boboltz Vice President Mike Pence appeared to have overestimated his audience’s opinion of the American president on Friday when he spoke during an event at the Munich Security Conference.

  6. Enter Sandman came out in 1991 on the eponymous album, Metallica. It was their first song that got major airplay on top 40 type radio, though they could give two craps about that!
  7. Yes, they did have plans for a much larger tower, but when the large tower plans fell through after multiple false starts, the plan that came together with Macy's and the Towne Properties/Warm Bros./Belvedere/Madison Marquette team along with the City, there was a strong push to limit the height due to the sunlight factor. This occurred when I worked at DCI and was peripherally involved in the meetings, but I don't know if it was formalized in the air rights sale to 5/3 or in a zoning restriction of some sort, or if it was just a gentlemen's agreement.
  8. I don't know if it was formalized anywhere, but when the original 22 story concept came about, it had a lot to do with the amount of sunlight hitting the square, which limited the height.
