WITHIN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA...
*As voters prepare to go to the polls Tuesday in the crucial 2014 mid-term elections, Republicans have outspent Democrats by an estimated 3-1 margin in hopes of achieving their goals. One third of the Senate and the entire House of Representatives is up for re-election, along with some individual state administrations and many local ballots.
*Many pundits fear that if the Republicans retain a majority in the House, and/or again a majority in the Senate, nothing positive will be accomplished.
*Georgia's Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp is denying all allegations of any wrong doing in registering potential new voters ahead of Tuesday's mid-term elections, despite the fact that over 40,000 new voter applications, all coincidentally(?) representing minorities, have disappeared with no one having any idea of their current whereabouts and status!
*Virgin Galactic's Spaceship 2 crashed in the Mojave Desert during a test flight Friday, with one pilot dead and the other injured. The cause of the crash is under investigation.
*An unmanned NASA rocket exploded over the Virginia coast earlier this week, thus delaying a resupply mission to the International Space Station.
*The Kïlauea volcano in Hawaii erupted, forcing evacuations of the surrounding areas.
*It came down to the final game, but the National League's San Francisco Giants won the 2014 World Series of Major League Baseball against the American League's Kansas City Royals.
