  • Southwest Airlines cancels more than 2000 flights over the last few days, leaving thousands of passengers stranded.

  • NFL players, fans debate the right PB&J ratio during a weather delay of the Kansas Chiefs vs. Buffalo Bills game.

 

JIMMIE JOHNSON: HAPPY MONDAY, EVERYONE. GOVERNMENT AND POST OFFICES ARE CLOSED BUT NEWSROOMS ARE NOT. LET’S GET STRAIGHT TO IT. 

FIRST UP, PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN BECAME THE FIRST PRESIDENT TO RECOGNIZE TODAY AS INDIGENOUS PEOPLE’S DAY. 

HE SIGNED A PROCLAMATION ON FRIDAY. WHILE IT’S NOT AN OFFICIAL HOLIDAY, EFFORTS ARE UNDERWAY TO DO AWAY WITH CELEBRATING COLUMBUS DAY AND HONOR NATIVE AMERICANS INSTEAD. 

SPEAKING OF NATIVE AMERICANS… A LARGE GROUP OF THEM AND ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVISTS RALLIED IN D-C TODAY. IT’S PART OF A WEEK OF ACTION PUT ON BY THE GROUP: PEOPLE VS. FOSSIL FUELS.

PROTESTERS ARE DEMANDING THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION STOP APPROVAL OF FOSSIL FUEL PROJECTS AND DECLARE A CLIMATE EMERGENCY. 

NOW TO THE SKIES. IF YOU FLY SOUTHWEST, IT MAY BE A ROUGH TRAVEL WEEK AHEAD.

THE AIRLINE CANCELING MORE THAN TWO THOUSAND FLIGHTS OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS.

THE COMPANY IS BLAMING THE CANCELATIONS ON AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL AND THE WEATHER.

AS A RESULT, THOUSANDS OF CUSTOMERS WERE LEFT STRANDED AT AIRPORTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY. 

TURNING TO A LITTLE POLITICS. FORMER PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP HELD A RALLY IN DES MOINES, IOWA OVER THE WEEKEND. 

DURING HIS SPEECH, TRUMP ONCE AGAIN HINTED AT ANOTHER PRESIDENTIAL RUN IN 20-24. 

HE ALSO ENDORSED SENATOR CHUCK GRASSLEY, WHO IS SEEKING HIS 8TH TERM IN OFFICE IN 20-22.

AND GET THIS, GRASSLEY IS 88-YEARS-OLD. 

OKAY. ONE MORE THING BEFORE YOU GO.

HOW DO YOU LIKE YOUR PB AND J SANDWICHES? PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY.

THIS WAS UP FOR DEBATE LAST NIGHT ON SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL.

THERE WAS A RAIN DELAY BETWEEN THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS AND BUFFALO BILLS AND PLAYERS WERE IN THE LOCKER ROOM. SOME OF THEM WERE EATING PB&J SANDWICHES AND SAID THE RATIO WAS OFF.

SO, HOW DO YOU YOUR SANDWICHES? IS IT 50/50 OR 70/30? I WANT TO KNOW. LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS.

PB&J ratios needs to be 80-20, PB to Jelly. Anything greater makes it too sweet. And the PB should not contain sugar.
