Hurricane Florence kills 4, including infant, in NC, officials say

(CNN) - At least four people, including a mother and her infant, have died in North Carolina as Hurricane Florence slowly moves through the Carolinas, officials said Friday.

Two people died in Wilmington after a tree fell on their house, the city's police department said.

"WPD can confirm the first two fatalities of Hurricane #Florence in Wilmington. A mother and infant were killed when a tree fell on their house," police tweeted Friday afternoon. "The father was transported to (New Hanover Regional Medical Center) with injuries."

The hospital said it has received three injured patients.

I think the Op-Ed writer is

Colonel Mustard in the library with the candlestick.

I'm sorry. I'm trying to calm my nerves. The young man who stole three rings from me ($16,000 worth, the only really expensive things I have) meets me in a courtroom in a few hours.

Amazingly, I got all three rings back - two from one pawn shop, and one from another pawn shop farther away. Long story - and interesting one, I think.

I expect the young man will plea. He was on probation when he stole them, so I don't know how that works. I've asked for $100 in restitution for the money I used as a down payment for the most expensive ring at the pawn shop. I'll let you know how it goes. I can use some good vibes right now - and thanks

Can someone set me straight re: Booker releasing the "committee confidential" emails?

I'm reading on Twitter and Facebook that the emails Booker is releasing had already been released by the Republicans. I had understood that one of the reasons Booker was releasing them was to show that there's no national security threat or top secret info in these emails, and to show where Kavanaugh is being dishonest in his answers, or at least not forthcoming.

Did the Republicans really release these previously? If so, why the hissy fit by them reading rules to Senator Booker, etc. today?

Thanks in advance!

On an evening walk with the dogs tonight, I told my husband that I hope when Democrats

get in power, they're ruthless. I want to see them turn the tables, I want to see fire in their bellies, I want them to - legally - do everything they can to stick it to the Republicans and Trump, if he's around that long. I want them to restore sanity to our country.

Kamala Harris is so poised, smart, and effective.

Honestly, I adore her.
