Alexandria was Braddock road westbound after little river turned by the crash near elmdale road, 29 northbound in fairfax before the fairfax county Parkway, the crash reported to be near summit drive, otherwise if you're in 15 near limestone school road that last report traffic was alternating around the fire department activity, no problems really on the beltway in Maryland through Montgomery county just to slow down in the usual spot on the outer loop and the big curve above the two 70 spur and coming off the southbound two 70 spur toward river road.

"2022 school year without police officers, also known as school resource officers, but those officers were reinstated. Three months later at the request of school leaders. At 7 48 now on this Saturday morning, we've got traffic and weather on the 8s to the traffic center and married to papa. All righty Nick and two Virginia, we're going to start out on I 66. I got a new crash being reported. The better news will start there. 66 runs well from front royal all the way into rosalyn, but if you are heading eastbound and you're heading toward nutley street before you get there, watch out along the left side. There's a crash in response was heading to see no slowdown jet. This is a good time to note that there is a travel divide on 66 if you missed it this week. It just started. But as you had eastbound passing one 23, if you need to get to nutley street or the metro, you need to be on the right side, the lanes will divide abruptly with the Jersey wall as well as the pylons for the express lane. So ever changing transformation of 66. 95 in Virginia Springfield of Fredericksburg all doing well, easy pass express points southbound. Nothing currently reported around the beltway, both in Virginia and in Maryland. On the Maryland side, 95 beltway to beltway rolling pretty well. If you do head southbound near 200 the ICC, which is 200 ICC exit number 31, watch out on the left side, we had a spin out crash. They were on the left side with police, but no lanes are blocked. So no attention being drawn as well. There are no delays just with caution. You'll see lights. You know the move over law. On the Baltimore Washington Parkway, we're down to the one crash. It's northbound ramp to west nursery. You were staying to the left to get by response to the scene in Columbia one 75, the westbound ramp to go south down 29 set, possibly a down tree, and inside of the beltway and hyattsville, two O two land of a road right at the ramp for the Baltimore Washington Parkway.

"When it breaks, he and Crawford's in the traffic center. The headline right now Nick is going to be in Frederick county, Maryland, the crash activity. After Braddock heights, trying to get toward meyersville near mile marker 46 westbound on I 70 all traveling to have been at a stop for better than three hours and maybe closer to four as this thing has unfolded very, very slowly said to involve a double tractor trailer. So unclear how long he's going to take to untie that gordian knot, but it's been quite a while and there's no end in sight at this point. Hopefully we're going to get an update from the front of the line at some point, but for the moment Maryland state authorities say all those lanes remain blocked on 95 and on the BW Parkway, we remain quiet to 70 no delays between Frederick and the lane divide, 50 across the bay bridge, all traveling to available and passable high profile vehicles though with caution as we have wind warnings on the bay bridge on the capitol beltway may have some issues on the ramp from the outer loop to Georgia avenue. That would be exit 31 just saw some emergency vehicles passed by and I see some people stopped on the ramp. So we may have crash activity or something happening on that ramp with caution from the outer loop and exit 31 onto Georgia avenue on the rest of the beltway. We are good in Maryland 95 northbound, the crash on the ramp to route three Fredericksburg exit one 30 that ramp is blocked.

"The WTO traffic center. Well, the delays are using on the auto loop of the beltway headed toward the Baltimore Washington Parkway, so the earlier wreck is reported as being on the ramp to the northbound Parkway should be cleared. Also, the delays on the interleukin onto southbound Connecticut avenue look to a V's. However, southbound Connecticut is still slow in the area of the beltway header toward Jones bridge road, so watch out for a work crew that may be set up there. Both directions of the beltway in Virginia near Georgetown pike, the work takes the left lane, the bigger delays on the inner loop side coming from the dulles toll road. Also delays on the interloop headed toward 66, the outer loop as well. The work along the right side in both directions. Eastbound 66 slows out of manassas into Centreville, also seeing delays from one 23 toward the beltway, southbound 95, a little heavy crossing the aqua, northbound not a bad trip out of Fredericksburg, into Springfield.

"Nancy, how many of you will be there? Gets no attention, no recognition, and yet it is the largest attended parade in terms of participants of any of the other parades. And how do I know? Because I go to almost all of them. Larger than the west Indian larger than in Puerto Rican large and in the Saint Patrick's Day parade in terms of all those marching. Not necessarily in terms of all those viewing on both sides of Fifth Avenue. So I stopped by the majestic theater. Clearly that has been the home of phantom of the opera for a year. And you should have seen it Broadway, Bill Lee. The theater goers who were sitting Shiva. And trying to get tickets for the remaining shows since Andrew Lloyd Webber, hours ago on Saturday morning, London time and in the West End of the district here announced that phantom of the opera would go black. And no longer be active in the great white way, Broadway, although it may still exist in terms of the shows on the road. The people who are coming up to me and they had tears in their eyes. Chain Curtis, we were listening to the wee hours of the warning. We were crying, we said, say it ain't so saving so. Phantom of the opera no more longest running. Show. Ever on the great white way. 35 years. 35 years. Is really good to see those theater ago is really their heart and soul into it and desperately trying to get tickets for the remaining shows. Anyway, we still have this existing trivia question and I asked why oh one. Did they exhume the body? The great general pulaski, who helped us in our Revolutionary War effort, organized the American cavalry. And fended off the bridge in the south. We won the show in the American Revolution because of general pulaski, look at all the counties that are named pulaski county in Arkansas, pulaski county and Georgia pulaski county and Tennessee. Why were they named that in tribute? To his bravery and his ability

"And it was one of those things that I was horrified to watch and then could not stop watching. I am not a musical theater person at all. I've done maybe two I went to weirdly enough one musical I have seen as starlight express, the Andrew Lloyd Webber went about trains. Which is really one of the more bonkers productions you'll ever get the chance to watch if it ever for some reason escapes the subterranean jail that I imagine Andrew Lloyd Webber threw it into after its run on Broadway was over. Yeah. Because even for him, that one is. Yeah. Really Andrew Lloyd Webber. There is some cheese associated with that guy. And then very starlight express. Yes, that thing is Kraft singles all the way down. But the thing that it's not even so much that they chose this way to do it, which, to me, it didn't even make full sense because it's like if you're going to do a Broadway thing, why wouldn't you do that if it's something New York related? Right, there were there weren't any New York teams. They did nothing. They didn't bust this out for the wildcard, you know? No, and it's like at least made some pained Bronx references. No, no. Featured no New York teams. I just find the concept of the baseball height video that networks do so weird because I don't really know who it's supposed to be for. The folks who are already planning on watching that game, we're going to do it regardless of whether or not you had the guy you contact and when Lin-Manuel Miranda said, no. Like, that doesn't they don't care that does not matter to them literally what the height video is because they're there just for the game. If you're a hardcore fan, you're there. If you're a casual fan, what about that is enticing you to watch the baseball game coming? Yep. That's what I just don't get. I don't have any ideas myself as to how Major League Baseball or MLB network or whatever network can do a better hype video. Because I don't know. I don't really know how you hide baseball and I do a hype video that isn't just guys pounding their chest after they make an outer hit a home run. There's just not a whole lot else baseball wise you can really kind of dramatize in that sense. And the ones where they have them just kind of staring into a camera like holding a bat or pretending they're pitching, or they even weirder one during the World Series. We see where they just put them in the room with the commissioner's trophy and are just like stare at this like it is the most important thing in your life and like you were in love with it and like you were going to marry it. I just find very strange too, especially because invariably there are geyser who have won at least one, if not multiple World Series, and you've got imagine for them, especially, this is probably not all that crazy. And they're also probably guys where it's like, I don't really care about this. If we win, I mean, obviously they want to win, but it's like, I don't fetishize the commissioner's trophy or the concept of whatever it is. Yeah. It's just very confusing to me why that existed. I get the sense that there's this constant push within the major league within MLB's offices of we have to promote promote promote. Yeah, of course, they have to promote, but they just choose the weirdest ways to go about it sometimes, where you just wonder, it's like either someone up in the league office just doesn't watch enough baseball and so it's not really sure what exactly they're supposed to be promoting. And so that's also something like Kristin chena with singing about various cities happens. Or someone up there is super disconnected from popular culture at large. Because it's kind of the other thing to me is like Broadway is not some aspects of Broadway are popular broadly popular, like the Hamilton stuff, which is why I imagine they had the wrapping and whatnot yes. But Broadway itself is not really something that carries I think a whole lot of cachet beyond folks who are already into it. So I don't really know who that was supposed to win over. Who is the casual fan who likes Broadway but isn't sure about this whole baseball thing? Well, I think part of why I found it so funny was that because, you know, they only did they only did the MLB network games. And so there was no NL answer to this. And I realized that that is a result of the broadcasts. MLB network didn't do any I know, games, right? Am I misremembering that? No, they only did. I mean the only one I remember is raised Red Sox, everything else is as distant to me as the fall of Rome and has been blended into a fine paste of playoff baseball anyway. But pretty sure that they only did that AL game. I mean, look, we're lucky. At least they didn't have Jim cotton buck showalter singing. Oh man, yeah. Although maybe Jim cott should have been singing that probably would have been better than what he ended up saying. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. So yeah, it was, let's see. We had, yeah, we had weird raised Red Sox, and then we had that fateful broadcast of White Sox Astros. And then I think MLB network exited the stage. So we didn't have an NL answer to this. And so I realized that they just did it 'cause MLB network was like, this would be fun. But I'd like to imagine that someone representing the NL was like, oh, we're not doing that. No. No, so we have someone excuse me, we are uninterested in that particular bit of nonsense. Go to hell with that. Yeah. It does just I mean, I like nonsense. And I like the principle. I like the best ones. Nonsense. I just wish that it would be a little more thoughtful about what nonsense it chooses as opposed to being like, you guys like Broadway, right? And 90% of the audience going, no, no, we know no one asked for this. No one at all asked for this. There really is a desperately sweaty energy to the things Major League Baseball does sometimes where you just feel like they're trying so hard to convince you that this is a thing you actually want. Yes, yes, I think that that is a good way to put it and a good note to end things on. Effectively wild, the desperately sweaty. Sweaty energy. Yeah. Here we are, embracing our desperately sweaty.

When did you start writing. Because i was acting. Because i was doing call the midwife and then we had a hiatus halftime it's called midwife. And then half time. You have six months off.

The first thing i write was very long book that was truly terrible. A real a real nonsense and it was like a long jillian words. And i am. I took it to a few publishing houses and they were like just really really dire. She and they were right. But but i'd written a sort of tv script for something called shiva hole.

"No mass decision quite often because there is a whole load of things being reopened and maximum capacities allowed. You're going to have lots of new freedoms to do and so yes you will have opportunities galore to make up your mind and to enjoy yourself. I think that the pm is going to signal quite a lot of the things that are due to reopen on the nineteenth this afternoon including the theaters will be able to operate at full capacity.

They can go ahead now. Not all of them have been able to organize because of the uncertainty but it looks as though they can go to go ahead with no restrictions. What about those covert passports. There was a lot of talk about them for a while. Has that idea of certification proving that. You're double jabbed or don't have the virus been dumped now there's a two reviews going to be published itself. No one's all certification. The other is on social distancing we certification a lot of the headlines. Recently have said certification dumped. We won't need a covert passport to go to the pub. We'll go to a restaurant or book a ticket to an event. I think that's slightly. That is true. But i think it's not missing the what's changed in the way. The government things because certification was at one stage seen as a mechanism to allow the reopening of the economy so double vaccinators of people could have all these freedoms and they would lead the way in in freedoms but the government has chosen to we all move at the same pace and the purpose of certification falls away for this summer but it's held in reserve and this is a point if certifications held in reserve. Is there because is a possibility that in the winter things might suddenly get worse than might be flu and co vid broke breaking out at the same time and the you might need certification to keep things open so rather than closed the pub industry as it increasing cases. Then say well we can stay open. Actually you're going to have to show a kobe passport to join a big crowd. The office party in the pub and by then every adult will have had the opportunity peaceable double vaccinated so the social division issue will be less of a concern. you'll see certification in other words. Turn from being not a reopening measure but an irreversibility guarantee something to stop things ever having to go back into reverse..

Royal treatment: Meghan Markle, Prince Harry detail racism, suicidal thoughts in Oprah tell-all
"Tonight. Buckingham palace bracing for the fallout after prince. Harry and duchess meghan. Markle broke their silence with a withering set of allegations against the palace including racist remarks by a member of the royal family in what may be the biggest threat to the modern monarchy. Here's abc's deborah roberts scathing accusation from one of their own megan shared with us. There was a conversation with you about archie skin tone. What was that conversation. But conversion harry and meghan lane accusations of racism at the feet of the monarchy telling winfrey that a senior member of the royal family wonder how dark skin would be in those months when i was pregnant all around the same time so we have in tandem. The conversation of he won't be given security. It's not going to be given title and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he's born. What and who. Who is having that conversation with you. What going to tell me who the conversation. I think that would be very damaging to them. The palace has yet to comment but the allegation detonated like a bomb. The news so explosive. Harry clarifying an important point with on. Cbs this morning. We certainly knew that meghan struggled with issues to do with race and racism during times of working member of the royal family particularly in sections of the press. What we didn't know until megan's interview was of course that shade experienced it within the royal family is something that will absolutely send shockwaves through the palace. Harry described at least by all accounts A monarchy that is Archaic out of touch bigoted possibly racist. Was that shocking to you. Absolutely not no no no the institution that is royal family has in the past number of years the found wanting it'd be found to be out of touch with its own people you only have to look at the backlash of the royal family. Had when princess. Diana passed away. The fact that it didn't occur to the institution that they need to come out and express sorrow express compassion with the rest of the people. Tells you exactly why it's case that did not surprise me. The big aji doesn't surprise me. The racism does not surprise me as for longtime royal watchers and the british public. Many are coming to the monarchy's defense a really see the point of insulting a ninety four year old woman and her family rest of her family and leaving unsavory was unsavory remarks about racism which. I really not backed up by factors. I can see if you're gonna make claims that big claims you really have to make it very clear what you're saying. We'll have a real family and speak jim. Just just be careful because they had country and we love them to bits and ain't got long left. I just leave him alone by the anyway. Some pushing back against the implication archie would not be a prince in part because of his race imaging. Lloyd webber has long followed the royal family shea at the moment doesn't qualify to be a prince only the grandchildren of monarchs get to be print so princess otherwise to any royals too. Many members of the royal family on she is the great grandchild of the queen so that full doesn't qualify for the title. Now the queen made an exception for george charlotte and louis because george one day will be king. Archie won't be if harry's wife had been white would the same thing apply that aren't you would not have been a prince absolutely so it had nothing to do with nothing to do with rice. Aren't you could become a prince. When grandfather prince charles becomes king. How is this playing out particularly among black britons today. We'll see the structural reasons of what it is. What i find particularly interesting. Is that people think that supporting the monarchy means. You can't hold them to account the queen is not beyond reproach the royal family's not beyond reproach it they do something wrong. We should call it out. Another bombshell megan saying her emotional distress was far deeper and more painful than anyone knew revealing. How while pregnant with archie. She was struggling with isolation and had suicidal thoughts. I just didn't. I just didn't want to be alive anymore. And that was very clear and real and frightening constant thought. She says she asked buckingham palace for help but was rebuffed. Megan telling oprah it all came to a head more than two years ago that day she inhering looked the picture of happiness at royal albert hall but behind their smiles up painful truth. We had to go to this event and i remember him saying. I don't think you can go. And i said i can't be left alone. I was also shocked by megan's revelation that she was happy suicide. The thought it just makes me feel that. What have they done to megan. Megan like like me as an independent woman. A career woman well educated women. What happened to lead her to that position. That made me sad. Mental health has long been an important cause. For harry and brother. William founding the initiative heads together to end the stigma around it for monica that talks openly about mental health and even run so important initiatives such as heads together which talks about the importance of it being ok to say it really goes against everything that the palisade that they stand for when someone like meghan being so alone and feeling those laws megan's time as a royal got off to a shaky start megan herself admitting she was unprepared for life in the royal family. She didn't know what it meant to be a working world that she went into it naively that she didn't know how to curtsy. And i was crossed with harry. Harry watched his brother spend eight years giving kate time. What was he doing. Why didn't he tell them. Why didn't he coughed a meghan. So you fault. Harry for allowing meghan be so naive hub -solutely. The couple has never made a secret of their bitter resentment of the british tabloids especially in what they see as a double standard of the coverage between and megan. The press was also very tough on. Kate middleton it was quite vicious toward her but it seemed to be different when it came to megan. What she went through is nothing compared to what making us through and you have to look at the comparisons they make constantly between and catherine that is just another example of how they're trying of how the press tried to drive a wedge throughout the jaw dropping interview prince harry and meghan praise the queen but harry could hardly conceal an apparent deep rift with his father. Prince charles i feel really let down. I will always love him. But there's a law of heart that's happened. He even offered his shocking detail that after leaving the uk last year. His father for a time didn't take his phone calls. Swati stopped taking your calls. Because i took matters and by that point i took matters into my own hands.
