The special, hosted by Brian Williams, will air on NBC, MSNBC, and the Weather Channel at 8 p.m. ET (7pm Central). Williams will report live from Moore, Okla., the Oklahoma City suburb that received the brunt of the damage.
A new, live episode of The Voice will air as scheduled at 9 p.m. ET (8pm Central). SOURCE
Ladies of New York, you are free to walk bare-breasted through the city! New York City's 34,000 police officers have been instructed that, should they encounter a woman in public who is shirtless but obeying the law, they should not arrest her. This is a good step towards gender parity in public spaces.
This decision means that breast exposure is not considered public lewdness, indecent exposure, or disorderly conduct. It also notes that, should a crowd form around a topless woman, the officer should instruct the crowd to disperse and then respond appropriately if it does not. Relative coverage is no longer a factor. CLICK HERE FOR MORE

Taco Bell has now sold a half-a-BILLION Doritos Locos Tacos!! (Have you tried them lately? YUM!)
A federal prison inmate named Gary Cole claims that the idea was his FIRST and is now suing Taco Bell! Here's the story:
Taco Bell claims that its product developers came up with the idea for the Doritos Locos Taco -- probably the most successful new fast food item of the 21st century so far, with more than half a billion sold in the past 14 months -- at a summit with Frito-Lay executives at its Irvine, Calif., headquarters. But a lawsuit filed by federal prison inmate Gary Cole in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas on May 15 alleges that the story behind the taco is a lie. In his 35-page handwritten complaint, Cole insists that he invented the Doritos Locos Taco -- and that Taco Bell and Frito-Lay stole the idea from him through the mail.
In September 2006, Cole wrote up a list of nine product ideas. Most of them were assorted products -- hot sauces, body oils, health mixes -- to be sold under the brand "Divas and Ballers." But one, the second in the list, was "Taco Shells of All Flavors (Made of Doritos)." The complaint says Cole sent the list to Janice B Cole and Keoiana K. Cole in September 2010 -- but that the letter was "stolen through the United States Postal Service Mail and submitted to Frito Lays [sic], Taco Bell, Pepsi Co, Yum Brands," by someone whose identity remains a mystery to Cole. The companies gave the mail thief "a check ... for a large amount" for the rights to his idea, then started manufacturing and selling the Doritos Locos Taco, the complaint says. It is unclear how Janice and Keoiana Cole are connected to Gary Cole.

Yesterday news broke of Angelina Jolie's decision to undergo a "preventative double mastectomy" since she carries a gene that sharply increases her risk for developing breast and/or ovarian cancer.
