We'll take a deeper look at the Boko Haram massacre in Nigeria, free speech after the Charlie Hebdo shooting, and update you with some optimism in the fight against Ebola in Africa. Plus, can you call dibs on the White House? Melissa has some feelings about the tendency for each party to say it's someone's "turn" to run for president.

Maybe so but so but gang violence did diminish, maybe how is a lesson to teach the world by those that know! Such a stupid plan that egg on a table until everyone says yeah I could have seen and done the same thing. But none of you did!

"Who cares if the program is not necessary, does not work, and has been deemed unconstitutional? Who cares if people in greatest need are subjected to an invasion of their privacy and stigmatized as likely drug users? If it helps you look a little more conservative, I suppose it is worth coming into the office during the holidays to make sure your signature is on it."

Check out Melissa's first letter of the new year, addressed to Michigan governor Rick Snyder after he signed a bill allowing his state's residents to be tested for illegal drugs if they receive food benefits: http://on.msnbc.com/1F0ZEjI #nerdland
