Path Train Woes and Clinton on Fox

Those who rely on public transportation may be in for a long night. And the problems might extend to the morning commute. PATH train service has been suspended between the 33rd St. station in Manhattan to Hoboken and Journal Square in Jersey City.

We're talking thousands of people. The problem is from a manhole fire, that damaged key signaling equipment.

We're on the story, at 11.

And what a scene it should be tonight, as Hillary Clinton shows up on, of all places, Bill O'Reilly's show on Fox. We'll have highlights, or low lights, depending.

Also at 11, the anti-government movement's latest blossom shows up tonight in Westchester County, where a supervisor in the town of Greenburgh, and a Councilwoman from Yonkers are now proposing that county government be disbanded.

Say what?

Paul Feiner and Joan Gronowski claim that about 75% of county government's $1.8 billion in functions are mandated by the state or federal governments anyway, so why shouldn't and why couldn't the services be handled by local governments?

Without meaning any disrespect to any of the fine folks who run things in those various local governments, can you imagine?

There are many who can't.

Tonight at 11, you'll hear their ideas, and the reasons why others think this is a really bad proposal.

Also at 11, a big defeat for Mayor Bloomberg's anti-gun campaign to hold gun makers liable for weapons getting diverted into illegal markets. A federal appeals court today tossed out New York City's lawsuit -- this after the justices rules that federal law gives the industry broad immunity to lawsuits filed by cities.

The ruling could reverberate: several other cities have also sued gun makers.

And we're going to also going to take a look at ways you can, in this horrible economy, improve your credit rating. It's of no small import, given the hard time banks are now giving would-be borrowers after the mortgage crisis.

Tim Fleischer tonight takes a look at credit scores, and how you can improve them.

We'll also have any breaking news of the night, plus Lee Goldberg's AccuWeather forecast, and Scott Clark with the night's sports. I hope you can join Liz Cho and me, tonight at 11.
