Thousands of pro-lifers have gathered in Washington, DC today for the first March for Life since the reversal of the Roe vs. Wade abortion decision last summer.

Note: This year’s ‘march’ ended at the US Capitol (rather than the Supreme Court), signaling a shift in the battle for the unborn.   https://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2023/january/50-years-later-first-march-for-life-in-post-roe-america-to-take-different-route-in-d-c

T-Mobile says hackers have stolen data on 37 million customers.

Good News? T-Mobile said the exposed data did not include bank account or credit card information, Social Security numbers or other IDs or passwords. The unidentified intruder DID obtain data, including addresses, phone numbers and dates of birth.

The breach occurred in late November and was discovered Jan. 5.



Seems like ‘everything’ costs more at the grocery store. What’s next?

Well, it seems that orange juice prices have skyrocketed. Florida orange growers have had a tough year: a heavy hurricane season, an early freeze, a fast-spreading ‘plant’ disease. Retail prices recently hit a record $6.27 a gallon (for reconstituted juice) and $10 a gallon for squeezed (not from concentrate), according to a Wall Street Journal report.

NOTE: Florida produces 90% of the orange juice industry in the US. For the first time, the Sunshine State will produce fewer oranges than California since World War II
