Deanne Criswell was in Florida Friday with Gov. Ron DeSantis, assessing the historic damage from Hurricane Ian and facing her biggest challenge yet as the new head of FEMA -- the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Not only is she the first woman to hold that critical job -- the face of FEMA when desperate Americans are demanding help that can never get to them fast enough -- the agency, before her time, has been roundly criticized for not delivering on its core mission. Will Criswell make a difference when FEMA is needed most?

The Blue Jays clinched a playoff berth Thursday afternoon when the Baltimore Orioles lost to the Boston Red Sox 5-3. That defeat mathematically eliminated Baltimore from the playoffs and guaranteed Toronto will be in the post-season but the Blue Jays had Thursday off, meaning they couldn't celebrate together as a team.

My dear friend Franco, I am deeply saddened to hear of your departure... From the first day we met at Cirque du Soleil in 1985, through our many creative encounters, we have dreamed together and had the chance and pleasure to realize some of our wildest dreams. "O" is one of them and I believe I can say, in all humility, that this show will undoubtedly remain in the annals of entertainment as a technical and artistic masterpiece.
