  • The polar vortex has turned swathes of the country colder than Antarctica, paralyzing cities and leading to at least a dozen deaths. Always frigid Chicago is expected to match its 1985 record low of a bone-chilling -27°F.
  • Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, who is considering running for president in 2020, failed the infamous "cereal test" on MSNBC's Morning Joe yesterday when he revealed he didn't know the price of a box of Cheerios. When told that is costs $4, Schultz looked surprised and said, "That's a lot."
