Wednesday, March 13th
GROUNDED! Citing what it calls new evidence gleaned from the crash of an Ethiopian jet this weekend, the FAA --with an apparent push from President Trump--has grounded all Boeing 737 Max 8 and 9 jets. The United States now joining most of the rest of the world, banning flights of one of the most advanced jets in the sky.

What changed between yesterday, when the FAA expressed confidence in the safety of the 737 MAX series, and today when the planes were ordered to immediately land? What kind of political pressure was leveled at the White House and airline regulators to keep the jets from flying? We will go In Depth.

We will also look at the implications for Boeing--a major component of the Dow.

Fallout from the college admissions bribery scandal continues, and many of the immediate casualties are coaches and school athletic department officials who were quickly fired after their arrests. At least four people at USC athletics were arrested in the scandal: does this expose corruption that's embedded in collegiate sports?

California's governor declares a halt--at least for now--on the death penalty in this state. What does this decision really mean? We will go In Depth on that.

And Toyota's newest car won't be designed to speed down earthly highways.......but to navigate lunar surfaces and Martian mountains.
