The weather this cold Monday was NEGATIVE 5 in Manchester NH, and the trains weren’t running into NYC because of the cold. Here are a few of the highlights of this Monday:

          **    The Appeals Court in Illinois has ruled that Rahm Emmanuel is NOT QUALIFIED to be on the ballot for Chicago Mayor due to residency issues…. Early voting starts next week for the February 22nd election.

          **   Even as Florida’s newly elected Gov. Rick Scott was in South Florida at the funeral service for two slain officers, gunned down serving a warrant, two more police officers, doing the same thing, were gunned down in St. Petersburg, FL.

          **   A gunman opened fire in a Detroit police precinct last night, injuring at least four officers.

          **  Pro-life groups braved the cold weather in Washington DC today to mark the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, having the March for Life on the National Mall.

          **  Jared Loughner, the accused Tucson tragedy gunman, appeared in court and pled not guilty to charges against him.

          **  Supreme Court Justice Sam Alito will definitely NOT be attending the State of the Union address tomorrow night. Justice Clarence Thomas has routinely refrained from attending the event, and there is rumor that Chief Justice John Roberts will not attend either.

Any others:
