Happy holidays from Target! If you shopped at a Target store in the United States between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15, someone has accessed your credit or debit card data. The company issued a statement on Dec. 19 advising customers that as many as 40 million debit or credit card accounts may have been compromised by the “unauthorized” access. This follows media reports from the day before about the breach in data security.

The Boston Marathon was first run in 1897. Until 2:50 pm yesterday, the biggest news from the nation’s premiere marathon was the way Rosie Ruiz won the 1980 Marathon by cheating. That changed just after hour four of yesterday’s race when two bombs detonated in the crowd near the finish line. The latest toll from the blasts is 3 dead and 176 injured. Among the first to respond to the blasts were members of the military and the military continues to aid Boston police and the investigation today.
