North Korea on standby

Friday, 29 March 2013 06:24 Published in National News

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has ordered his forces on standby to strike the U.S. mainland, South Korea, Guam and Hawaii.

State media say Kim "convened an urgent operation meeting" of senior generals just after midnight and signed a rocket preparation plan. The North is fuming after just yesterday, U.S. nuclear-capable B-2 bombers dropped dummy munitions in joint military drills with South Korea.

And tens of thousands of North Koreans turned out for a 90-minute mass rally today in support of Kim's call to arms.

 

Republican US Senator Roy Blunt stopped by our KTRS Studios this morning. Speaking with host McGraw Milhaven, Blunt says as co-chair of the Ag committee he's pushing legislation to get essential workers like food safety inspectors to show up for work.

Under sequestration, the law would change and meat inspectors would not have to show up, which Blunt says could threaten the jobs of thousands of food industry workers across the country.

Blunt says that "any furloughs or layoffs of USDA inspectors would threaten 500,000 private-sector jobs at the processing facilities. If all of the inspectors take the mandated 11 furlough days in place for many federal workers, he said the result would be a loss of $400 million on take-home pay for the workers at the processing plants.

Blunt met with the 130 employees at St. Louis' Volpi Meat Company on Monday about his push as co-chair of the Agricultre Appropriations committee to get essential workers to report to work.

Akin's "legitimate rape" remark featured in TV drama

Tuesday, 26 March 2013 11:23 Published in Local News
Former Missouri Congressman Todd Akin's comment about legitmate rape during his campaign last year for US Senate is now a part of a television drama.

Wednesday night's episode of Law & Order's SVU features a female sports reporter who is raped by a co-worker, becomes pregnant, but decides to keep the child.

You may recall Akin's comments on rape and abortion during his run for US Senate were made in an interview with Fox 2's Charles Jaco. Akin says,"First of all, from what I understand from doctors, if it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

The television show promo announces, "Ripped from the headlines, words that set off a national controversy..."

The episode features the rapist being tried for the crime. An "expert" witness is then seen uttering Akin's comment.

The episode airs Wednesday night at 8 on KSDK Channel 5(NBC).
