We’ve all been warned about the dangers of distracted driving. But what about distracted walking? A government report released Monday highlights an unsettling trend: After decades of decline, pedestrian fatalities are once again on the rise. And “petextrians” — people who text while walking — may be partly to blame. According to a Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) report, since 2009, pedestrian fatalities have actually increased by 15 percent — climbing to 4,735 in 2013. That’s one pedestrian death every two hours.

Just because most of the nation’s capital is on vacation doesn’t mean we don’t have politics to report! First: our daily Donald story focuses on his will-he-or-won’t-he run as a third party candidate. Mr. Trump told ABC News on Monday that he has no imminent plans to rule out a third-party run for president (at least not yet). And breaking news out of Michigan: Melissa Gilbert, who played the beloved Laura Ingalls Wilder on TV’s “Little House on The Prairie” in the 70s and 80s, has announced that she will be running for Congress in Michigan’s 8th District. Pa would be so proud of Half-Pint!

The post-debate backlash against Donald Trump continues to grow, other candidates like Fiorina and Kasich seek to capitalize on their strong performances. There’s also word that the Trump campaign is in disarray with the most recent evidence of that being the firing (says Trump) or resignation (says Stone), depending on who you listen to, of Senior Political Adviser Roger Stone. Steve analyzes all this, pointing out that what’s happening to Trump is an inevitable part of the ‘media primary’ in which leading candidates are subject to greater scrutiny and tougher questioning. Mary gives you the latest blow-by-blow in Trump’s battle with Fox Anchor Megyn Kelly, with the Donald holding his ground and still refusing to issue an apology.
