You might wake up tomorrow morning to find there’s a new billionaire among us, assuming someone wins tonight’s $1.5 Billion Powerball jackpot.

Recent attacks overseas, Paris, Istanbul, Baghdad… and if you like, throw in San Bernardino… all point to how soft targets have become the terror attack tactic of choice for ISIS. And it’s easy to see why. Mainly, they are difficult to prevent. But there is also the psychology of the soft-target strategy, where a steady frequency of attacks leads to fear throughout a country, leading to distrust, suspicion, and division among societies with diverse cultures and heritages.

1/14/16 Podcast Jim Ryan

Tuesday night we heard how the United States was the most powerful nation on earth and on the rise again, with more jobs, better healthcare, and remarkable strides educationally, technologically, environmentally, and sociologically. That was from President Obama. Thursday night in Charleston, SC, we probably won’t hear the same message. But in addition to berating the president’s record, which is expected, what will probably get the most interest is what the candidates have to say about each other. As leader, Trump can expect to take the most hits, but will Cruz get hit with the “birther” issue, and Rubio over immigration “flip-flop?”

Attackers set off explosions at a Starbucks cafe in a bustling shopping area in Indonesia’s capital and waged gun battles with police Thursday, leaving bodies in the streets as office workers watched in terror from high-rise buildings. Police said five attackers and two civilians were killed, while at least 10 people were injured in the brazen attacks, which followed several warnings in recent weeks by police that Islamic militants were planning something big. It was unclear if any perpetrators remained at large. : The U.S. Embassy is asking all U.S. citizens in Jakarta to stay put … avoid the area … until authorities figure out exactly what is going on.
