    BOSTON (CBS) – TSA agents have found a number of strange things in luggage over the years, but their latest unusual discovery is uniquely New England. A spokesman shared a photo Monday of a lobster weighing more than 20 pounds. The crustacean was detected in a checked bag in Terminal C (JetBlue) on Sunday morning. Lobsters can travel in either carry-on or checked bags. They’re a common sight at New England airports, but this one was notable because of how large it is. The TSA tells WBZ-TV that the lobster was traveling in a cooler and was alive and well....

    Seeking to "roll out a red-carpet welcome" to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, US President Donald Trump would host him for a working dinner at the White House on Monday, the first of its kind under this administration. "The White House is very interested in making this a special visit. We're really seeking to roll out the red carpet. In fact, the two (leaders) will have dinner, a working dinner at the White House. “This will be the first dinner for a foreign dignitary at the White House under this administration. So, we think that's very significant," a senior administration official...

    Problem with that is that their listeners, viewers and readers do not want to be entertained. They want to be truthfully informed. With the bulk of the mainstream media having long ago thrown totally in with the progressive left, should anybody have to guess who won’t be coming to tonight’s annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner? President Donald Trump stuck to his boycott of the event, and it took less than a nanosecond for a highly offended media to come across like the aggrieved party.

  • Trump to skip the White House Correspondents’ Dinner? Good

    Washington Times ^ | Joseph Curl
    Since well before his historic and shocking win, President Trump has done fierce battle with the media. It’s an adversarial relationship in which neither side likes — or perhaps even respects — the other. There’s nothing new about that. Chief executives have done battle with the press corps since America’s founding, and it’s often been even uglier than it is now. What’s more, the media has become ever more liberal. That, too, makes sense. Newspapers have been gobbled up by huge media corporations, and both depend on ads for revenue. Where are the best markets? In the cities, populated by...

    The president was heading to his new flagship property in D.C., the Trump Hotel, for a private dinner at the BLT Steakhouse inside. Once the president arrived at the location, the reporter who was on assignment to cover him, Jordan Fabian of The Hill, was not let into the building and had to wait in the van outside for the remainder of the dinner, without a guest list or details of what was happening inside. Inside the restaurant, I was seated at a table that had booked hours earlier, directly next to where Trump would be dining. I made the...

    President Trump announced Saturday that he would not be attending the White House Correspondents Association Dinner in April, punctuating his combative relationship with the news media. “I will not be attending the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!” tweeted Mr. Trump. The annual dinner is a light-hearted affair that traditionally featuring comedians and the president giving roast-style speeches. But Mr. Trump has been battling the press throughout the presidential campaign and has had repeated run-ins with reporters since taking office. He’s railed against what he calls “fake news” and recently...

  • Millennials are killing the dinner date

    In recent years, somewhere between endless Tinder swipes and countless OkCupid matches, the dinner date has fallen by the wayside. As online dating surges in popularity, few millennials have the time, money, or desire to sit with a stranger over a long meal. Only 7 in 10,000 messages in a recent OkCupid IAC survey suggested “grabbing some dinner” and a somewhat less scientific survey this reporter conducted of several dozen actively dating 20-somethings found that dinner has become a highly taboo first date. Last month, Moody’s Investors Service slashed its operating-profit growth forecast for the restaurant sector. (This appears to...

    After a dinner meeting with Donald Trump at Jean-Georges restaurant in New York, Mitt Romney delivered a glowing review of the president-elect’s leadership during the transition. Mr. Romney, who was invited to the dinner purportedly for a follow-up interview for the job of secretary of state, described it as a “wonderful evening” and said that he was “impressed” with Mr. Trump’s handling of his upset victory in the election. “We had another discussion about affairs throughout the world and these discussions I’ve had with him have been enlightening, and interesting, and engaging,” Mr. Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, told...

    A new WikiLeaks release of stolen emails belonging to Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta reveal an invitation by his brother to a “Spirit Cooking dinner” at the home of artist Marina Abramovic. “Spirit Cooking with Essential Aphrodisiac Recipes” was released by Ms. Abramovic in 1996, but the “ingredients” call for “fresh breast milk with fresh sperm milk” to be consumed “on earthquake nights.” New York’s Museum of Modern Art called it a “cookbook” for “evocative instructions for actions or thoughts.” Another recipe calls for “fresh morning urine.” “Are you in NYC Thursday July 9 Marina wants you to come...

Some of my theories: --He wasn't there at all, too many "Bill is a Rapist" protesters following him everywhere he goes--LOL! --He was lurking somewhere in the hotel groping a young intern or campaign worker --He realized he couldn't grope Maria Bartiromo because she was constantly on camera behind the speaker's lectern --He voted for Hillary and took Madonna up on her offer LMAO, Happy Friday!!

    California Gov. Jerry Brown is offering intimate gubernatorial dinners to donors who help defeat a targeted November ballot measure, at a time when the governor will be deciding the fate of all new state legislation, the state Democratic Party says. Proposition 53 would require statewide voter approval on projects that would require more than $2 billion in state revenue bonds to fund. That could complicate the future of two proposed Brown projects, for high-speed rail and for giant twin tunnels to carry Northern California water south. A fundraising letter by state Democratic Party financial chief Angie Tate on Aug. 9...

    President Obama hosted Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his wife, Ho Ching at the 12th state dinner of his administration tonight in Washington. The black-tie affair – called by the White House a 'celebration of summer bounty' – marked the 50th anniversary of bilateral relations between the U.S. and the city-state, which Obama refers to as an anchor for the U.S. presence in Southeast Asia. Obama spoke of these five decades of friendship tonight when he gave his toast before dinner began.
