Terrorists kill dozens in central Paris; hostages taken

Dozens of people are reported dead after a series of what appear to be coordinated attacks across Paris late Friday


Time for GOP panic? Establishment worried Carson or Trump might win - WP: 

"The party establishment is paralyzed. Big money is still on the sidelines. No consensus alternative to the outsiders has emerged from the pack of governors and senators running, and there is disagreement about how to prosecute the case against them. Recent focus groups of Trump supporters in Iowa and New Hampshire commissioned by rival campaigns revealed no silver bullet."
