No remarks on the current blackout in Midtown Manhattan? FOX is covering it live and the only way they can broadcast is because they have generator power in their building.

Ghislane Maxwell's father, Robert Maxwell and Charles Bronfman had ties through a business deal from 1989 (control over the Jerusalem Post):
"Maxwell and Bronfman Make Joint Bid for Jerusalem Post"
British press magnate Robert Maxwell and Canadian industrialist Charles Bronfman have joined forces to bid for a controlling interest in The Jerusalem Post, Israel’s only English-language daily.
Did they team up for this one business deal or did they have other connections as well
In 1981 the S.E.C.’s Jonathan Harris and Robert Blackburn took Epstein’s testimony and that of other Bear Stearns employees in part of what became a protracted case about insider trading around a tender offer placed on March 11, 1981, by the Seagram Company Ltd. for St. Joe Minerals Corp.
Ultimately several Italian and Swiss investors were found guilty, including Italian financier Giuseppe Tome, who had used his relationship with Seagram owner Edgar Bronfman Sr. to obtain information about the tender offer.
Bronfman linked to Israeli probe
OTTAWA - Israeli police are considering investigating Canadian businessman Charles Bronfman over donations he made to a group suspected of illegally funding the 1999 election campaign of former prime minister Ehud Barak. One Israeli newspaper, the Globes business daily, reported this week that police have already begun their investigation of Mr. Bronfman, the billionaire businessman and philanthropist.
Mr. Bronfman is chairman of Israel's Koor Industries Ltd., the country's largest industrial conglomerate. Koor chief executive officer Jonathan Kolber, a Canadian business associate of Mr. Bronfman's, may also be investigated by police for his contributions to ROVAD, say newspaper reports.
ROVAD was set up in 1997 by Doron Cohen, Mr. Barak's brother-in-law, and another businessman with the stated aim of encouraging immigration to Israel, promoting art, science and education and giving aid to the needy. But it is suspected by some that ROVAD was a front that funnelled money illegally into the campaign of Mr. Barak's Labor party. Mr. Barak won the election over Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party.
Lane Bloodworks counts on at least 20 percent of their donor base to come from high schools.
The American Red Cross has declared a blood-supply emergency in the D.C. area and issued an urgent call for donations.

I was under the impression that there were no casualties in the SoCal quakes.
So there is a blood shortage?
