Donald Trump and NBC Fire Each other

Donald Trump not only bowed out of the Apprentice, he has bowed out of NBC entirely.  NBC released a statement saying they severed ties because of Trump’s comments on illegal immigration. 
  • Trump responded in a statement which read, "If NBC is so weak and so foolish to not understand the serious illegal immigration problem in the United States, coupled with the horrendous and unfair trade deals we are making with Mexico, then their contract violating closure of Miss Universe/Miss USA will be determined in court. They will stand behind lying Brian Williams, but won't stand behind people that tell it like it is, as unpleasant as that may be."

Travellers Will Be on the Go for July 4th

What...?  There's only two days left in June??  I swear I just finished shoveling my driveway!

Anyways, the Fourth of July falls on a Saturday this year, so that means for many of us... THREE DAY WEEKEND! AAA estimates that 41.9 million people will travel 50 miles or more from home during the holiday weekend, which is an increase of 0.7 percent from last year, and the most since 2007.

As per usual, most travelers will getaway by car (85%), which is understandable considering that gas costs an average of $2.78 per gallon, which is 88 cents lower than the same time last year. AAA estimates that the reason why so many people are hitting the road this year is due to the better economy and lower fuel costs.
