SEPTEMBER 21, 2002



There he is! There!

Where are you, boy? | Come on, son.

I said freeze!


OCTOBER 3, 2002

And a good morning, and | our top stories around the world today--

Assistant Secretary of StateJames Kelly | continues his talks in Korea...

this time with North Korean officials.

This is the first mission to the country | by a senior American official...

since the Clinton administration.

Checking business news-- | A rally by the stock market...

may boost investor confidence, | but are more criminal charges...

in the works for Enron executives?

In local news, Montgomery County police are investigating...

a shooting last night | in a Wheaton shopping--


- Come on, Sandy. We gotta go. | - I'm up. I'm up.

What time did you | come to bed last night?

I don't know. 2.00 or so.

You need to get more sleep, Charles.

MONTGOMERY COUNTY POLICE CHIEF CHARLES MOOSE | We had a murder last night in Wheaton.

I told Jacobs to check in.

- A domestic dispute? | - We don't know.

How will that affect our weather?

All on our forecast after our look | at Thursday morning traffic.

A lot of traffic out there, | especially if you're on the Outer L oop...

leaving I-95 College Park | headed toward Silver Spring.

The Beltway out of Oxon Hill | is gridlocked...

with everyone leaving | for the Wilson Bridge.

Did Lieutenant Jacobs have something he | needed to tell you at 2.00 in the morning...

that he couldn't have told you at 8.00?

I've gotta drop you at the airport, | stop by the headquarters...

go to Officer Murphy's funeral, | get back to the airport for my flight.

You know, I might miss | Jacobs altogether.

Chesapeake | Bridge and a lot of slow traffic left...

however, on the 95 and 395 | between Springfield and Bridge Street.

If you're on your way to work, allow a lot | of extra time and patience this morning.

That's the shape of things | at the moment,Jim. Back to you.

Thanks, Christine. In the Middle East--

Do you realise that | since we moved here, you haven't--

you haven't lost one officer | in the line of duty?

Yeah, that's one thing | I don't miss about Portland.


The almanac says | the record high in Montgomery County...

for October 3 | was way back in 1954.

So how hot can it get?


- Hey. Yeah. Yeah. | - Yeah.

Good morning, Chief.

Good morning, sir. | I'll call you back.

I typed up the notes for your talk with | a couple Post-Its where it reads awkwardly.

Don't worry, Silvia. | My vernacular endears me to people.

Yeah. Paulson.

- Paulson. | - Yes, sir.

You want to talk | about the sergeant's exam?

Ah, no. It can wait, Chief. | I mean--

You got five minutes. | Come into the sanctum.

A man's gotta know his limitations.

I'm not saying don't take the test. | I'm saying give yourself--

Chief, we have a problem.



- Good morning, Mayor Duncan. | - Good morning.

- You're gonna miss the bus. | - What?

- You're gonna miss the bus. | - That's okay. I'll ride my bike.

- Ride fast. | - Milk, honey.

So I miss homeroom, maybe. | It's not a big deal.

- All right? | - Kiss.

- Sandwich? Thank you. | - Phone?

Come on, Jack.

- It's here. It's here. | - Thank you.

- See you later. | - Are you in front of the TV?

Is it on? See it?

Witnesses are saying they heard one shot.

- One report from a rifle or a handgun. | - Yeah, I see it.

A shooting last night. | A second one earlier this morning.
