Wiped out

Bill Ritter's daily take on the news.

With all the pressing problems we face, toilet paper preferences may not be at the top of the list.

But for many today it is top of mind.

Consumer Reports has given toilet paper its due and studied it in far greater depth than most of us could imagine.


And so what do people like or dislike? Are they drawn to softness or strength? Is scratchiness really a problem? And how about ease of tearing from the roll? Yup ? all the questions have been answered. And in fact, it's something of a talker.

So put aside worries about the economy, or the war in Afghanistan, or nuclear development in Iran, or violence in our cities at least for a few minutes, so we can all ponder the paper that binds us, when we're not binded that is.

We'll have the results of this burning issue, tonight at 11.

Also at 11, another Consumer Reports story this time involving customer loyalty for supermarkets. Turns out one in three shoppers has at some point dumped their markets. And one reason is money. Changing to a lower-priced market can save big bucks ? and so too can changing the way you shop at your current market. We have some real money-saving tips.

And we're keeping on our eyes on the devastation and remarkable images of tornadoes touching done in Dallas, Texas today.

We're also in New Jersey for Bruce Springsteen and his E St. Band's first local concert since the death last year of The Big Man, Clarence Clemons, the band's horn player.

And we're following three more Republican Presidential primaries tonight in Wisconsin, Maryland and the District of Columbia. We'll have results, at 11.

We'll also have any breaking news of the night, plus Meteorologist Amy Freeze (in for Lee Goldberg) with her AccuWeather forecast, and Rob Powers with the night's sports. I hope you can join Sade Baderinwa and me, tonight at 11.
