Just for fun, here's the original Mercury Theatre radio broadcast of "War of the Worlds" from October 30, 1938. The program, starring Orson Welles, caused a nationawide panic. Listeners who missed the program's introduction thought they were hearing news coverage of an attack from Mars.
In the current issue of Esquire Magazine, they interview Jonathan Goldsmith, the actor who plays "The Most Interesting Man in the World" in the beer commercials. Turns out he's pretty interesting..

We've talked about the issue of human trafficking and exploitation many times on the show, but I especially wanted to highlight it this morning because some great things happened to rescue children this past weekend! Last weekend the FBI conducted a 3 day, nationwide combat to rescue children from prostitution and they rescued 105 children! Learn more about it HERE.
