Good morning, Listeners! This is Linda from News in Bed – with the headlines that you need to know before getting out of bed. Today is Thursday, September 24, 2015. Here are the top stories:
Pope Francis immediately dove into the whirlpool of U.S. politics on Wednesday, using his first direct address to the nation to weigh in on deeply divisive issues – the climate change, Cuba, marriage and immigration. The pontiff, speaking before 11,000 ticketed guests at an elaborate welcoming ceremony on the White House’s South Lawn, signaled that he would not be steering clear of controversial issues during his six-day visit. Pope Francis then climbed aboard an open-sided Pope-mobile later in the morning to parade before tens of thousands of cheering people who lined the streets around the White House.
