Close calls

Bill Ritter's daily take on the news.

Watch out for the other guy. That was the cautionary mantra driven into our heads as young drivers.

And this weekend - as I drove my family to Boston - that's exactly what I ended up doing. Watching out for the other guy.

Two times I actually saw peeps backing up - BACKING UP!!! - on the highway because they overshot an off-ramp or didn't want to be stuck in traffic.

And another time I saw someone make a right turn from the highway - across a wide strip of grass, because they missed the off-ramp.

Where are the cops when you need them? I'm just sayin'.

But I'm back, alive, and prepping tonight's 11 p.m. newscast.

We'll have the breaking news of the night, plus an investigative piece by Jim Hoffer, about a computer training school in New Jersey, that apparently took thousands of dollars from students for tuition, but has now suddenly closed. Gone. So what happens to the students? And where's the owner? Jim is on the case for us.

I hope you can join Sade Baderinwa and me, tonight at 11.
