We wanna hit you with some headlines. First let's talk about hurricane Bill. It's a little weaker, still a dangerous storm. It's a Category 1. It won't make landfall here in the US, but its effects have been felt along coastlines from North Carolina to Massachusetts.

Also, a story we have been watching this morning at Greece. This is near Athens where evacuation orders are in effect for thousands of people because of a massive wildfire. This is one about 75 raging across the country.

Also we are still waiting on the election results over in Afghanistan,  might take a minute. They don't count ballots1 like we count them here in the US. A lot of ballots have been carried on dockets, literally2. Also, hand-counting going on in tents. That's why it's taking a while. Now, even though voters went to the polls, that was some three days ago, we are still waiting on those results.

And there is more fall-out today over Thursday's release of a Lockerbie bomber3. Now Great Britain denying suggestions that it played a role on decision by Scottish courts. Those whispers grew louder after Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi thanked Britain for influencing the decision. Well the bomber who is dying of cancer is the only person convicted of the attack that killed 270 people, most of them Americans. And the head of the FBI has sent a stinging letter to a protest. Robert Miller4, says the release "gives comfort to terrorists around the world".

Time and money, they are running out for the government's "Cash for Clunkers" program. Yes, the "Cash for Clunkers" program is going to expire tomorrow, so get out to get your deals, better do them in a hurry, 'cause a lot of deals are just trying to get your paperwork in by eight o'clock tomorrow night.
