Easy Rider star Peter Fonda is dead. The son of Hollywood legend Henry Fonda and brother of Jane Fonda died this morning at his Los Angeles home. Fonda co-wrote the classic counter-cultural film and produced it. He also earned a Best Actor nomination for his performance in 1997's Ulee's Gold.       A computer glitch that shut down the systems of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection at the nation's airports appears to be over. It did, however, cause long delays for passengers arriving on international flights. The system was down for two hours. Airports are reporting that everything is slowly getting back to normal.       President Trump is claiming a Michigan Congresswoman "obnoxiously" turned down an offer from Israel to visit with her grandmother. Trump accused Representative Rashida Tlaib [[ tal-EEB ]] of grandstanding. Tlaib said she would not visit her grandmother because of the oppressive conditions Israel put on her if she were to travel there.       It probably won't stop all the conspiracy theories, but the New York City medical examiner is ruling Jeffrey Epstein's death a suicide. He released the autopsy of the financier who was accused of sex crimes involving minors. Epstein was found dead in his jail cell last weekend.       For the third straight week stocks are finishing lower than they were at the start of the week. The wild week ended on a good note, with the Dow up 307 points. Overall, stocks closed about two-and-a-half percent below where they were when the markets opened on Monday.       The University of Vermont can claim to be number one in at least one category: Smoking pot. The Princeton Review placed the school at the top of its Reefer Madness list. About 140-thousand students at nearly 400 schools were surveyed to determine which school's students smoke the most marijuana.
