This morning at 6:20, we talked with ABC Newsman Sam Donaldson and asked him if Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid went over the line when he compared Republicans who are not supporting his health care reform bill to people who voted against the abolition of slavery. Sam said yes, he did go over the line. He talked about how contentious the discussions (debates?) have been and how he believes the public option is gone. We talk to Sam every Tuesday morning at 6:20

At 8:45 we talked to the owner of the Utah Flash basketball team, Brandt Andersen, about unhappy fans last night who believed Michael Jordan would be in the arena playing Brian Russell one-on-one at halftime. There was no Michael Jordan, but there was an "impersonator" which displeased the audience and many left before the game was over. Mr. Andersen said it was his understanding that Michael "might" make an appearance and that it would be a last minute decision. He said he hadn't spoken to Michael himself, only members of his staff, and he disputed reports of so many unhappy fans.
