Polls are now showing a neck-and-neck race between Ted Cruz and Donald Trump in Iowa—Cruz's support has fallen off a bit in recent days. Neck-and-neck! Whose neck will prevail?
In non-neck news:
- Iran released the 10 U.S. sailors who were briefly detained yesterday when they apparently strayed into Iranian waters by accident; though the U.S. made no formal apology for the incident one of the sailors apologized during a brief interview on state television.
- Michigan's governor activated the National Guard to help distribute bottled water to residents of Flint—where the city is still sending overdue notices to people who aren't paying their water bills even though the water is causing lead poisoning.
- A suicide bomber killed at least 15 people outside a polio clinic in Pakistan; more people are now killed by terrorists while working on polio eradication campaigns than are killed by the disease itself.
- Poland's new right-wing government is undermining the country's democratic institutions.
- And Rick Perry, a man who at times was seriously considered to be a potential future president of the United States, is now doing lobbying work for a Fort Lauderdale-based "dental benefits administrator."
Have a good day out there!
