Extreme flash flooding in Chicago. Streets and interstates more like rivers. Saw about 10 cars stuck in high water, 3 manholes blown off by overloaded sewer system

Right.

Iran Bans Google+, Calling It a US 'Spy Tool'

(TEHRAN, Iran) -- Google's new social networking site, Google+, launched just about three weeks ago and it has already attracted over 10 million members around the world. But Iran can only seem to imagine a negative about Google+, making it harder for Iranians to join.

Anyone have any good back to school story ideas for us to do next month? Thinking elementary to high school kids, not college.

The 1st of 2 interesting reads. And I have a feeling this could stir up a lot of strong feelings in this space. I tend to agree with this article, because I've been more or less saying this and I think I'm in a decent position to. I know a LOT of people on G+, which is unusual for most G+ users thus far. That being said, I do NOT know a lot of people actually *using* G+. And if they don't get my friends and me, the Millennial generation, I'd be surprised if this "succeeds." As I've noticed, it seems most active G+ users are Generation Xers or Baby Boomers, not the Millennials. My opinion- I'd like G+, if all of my friends (Millennium generation).. would start actually using it.

I think you make an interesting point, especially since so much of the news has been about the # of users/accounts, but not stats on measured usage and active users...

As a pure baseball fan, I loved it. I could see how it draws detractors - few creature comforts, obstructed view seats, etc - but I still really enjoyed it. Also, their game presentation is excellent. No screaming in-stadium emcees, no canned cheers, etc - just organ and PA announcer.

Shuttle Atlantis, back home at the Kennedy Space Center for good. Very awesome image.

I'm disapointed that this may be the last time we get to see shuttle landings like this...

I got to take Shuttle Atlantis' final landing ever live in my show this morning. Pretty freaking cool and pretty amazing. If you missed it, here it is. It gives me chills.

So after about 2 weeks of Google+... I think it's already heading down a path Google doesn't want. Look at your streams. How many posts are twitter-esq and how many are Facebook-esq? At least for me, almost all are twitter-esq, and I imagine many of your's are as well... and I KNOW that's not exactly what Google wants... because let's be frank, Twitter isn't who Google is trying to topple here.

Point- while people are jumping on G+ in herds, they're not posting personal thoughts or pictures. They're still reserving that for their Facebook profile.

Interesting perspective. I think that is very valid point. I think this is very interesting opportunity, where it is no longer like RSS feeds of articles... it's RSS feeds of authors, writers and thought leaders that you can interact with. So, a lot of hte personal stuff will stay elsewhere... and I'll put my authentic business self and probably less personal family stuff, I'd say.

Introduction
I sleep all day and work all night. I produce the #1 rated morning newscast in Kansas City. Pretty cool when you think about it. I should think about it more often I guess... ;)

I love social media and communicating with people, and hope to have a similar type job some day.
