Messy weather; E-mail me about Clemens...

Behind The News

Winter finally arrived. Last night it was snow, then all day it was rain - lots of it -- and tonight it'll be ice, again.

The sloppiness aside, the black ice and ponding on the roads have caused dozens of accidents.

Lee Goldberg is tracking how long this weather system will last. And we'll have the latest on all the problems it's created, tonight at 11.

What a bizarre scene in Washington. Roger Clemens, perhaps the best pitcher ever, sitting four feet away from his former trainer - each, and both, under the spotlight in the disturbing steroid scandal that has infected baseball. Spring training is beginning (and Scott Clark is there for us tonight) -- it's a time of awakening and rebirth and new beginnings and anything-is-possible -- but the scandal that won't go away is casting a pall over the national pastime. And it can't be whitewashed.

Someone is lying. Perhaps both of them are.

And among the people watching the proceedings, in person, today on Capitol Hill: at least six FBI agents. Lots of people are now wondering - despite his vehement denials that he used steroids -- that Roger Clemens might not get into the Hall of Fame. But the issue for the once-great pitcher may not be the Hall of Fame, it might be the Halls of Justice.

Jim Dolan is at the hearings for us -- and he'll report from Washington, tonight at 11.

I'd like to hear your opinions about Roger Clemens and today's hearings. Please email me at Bill.S.Ritter@ABC.Com, and let me know if I can use your name in tomorrow's column.

Also at 11, we'll have the latest on the police search for the man who killed his psychologist on the Upper East Side last night. He used a meat cleaver; and, when the counselor's colleague heard her screams and came to help, the killer attacked him as well.

We'll also have any breaking news of the night.

I hope you can join Liz Cho and me, tonight at 11.
