FROM THIS EPISODE

As investigations continue in Paris, we’re taking a step back to ask: What does ISIS want?

And the number of Central American families crossing the border has more than doubled since last fall. These new numbers signal a migrant crisis that could eclipse the migrant crisis of last summer.

Next, most critics agree that rock ‘n’ roll got its start at a tiny record label in Memphis — Sun Studios. The man behind Sun, Sam Phillips, was the first to record Elvis Presley, Howlin’ Wolf, B.B. King, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison and more.

Finally, the original Taco Bell restaurant, built in 1962, has been saved from the wrecking ball. Tomorrow night, the whole thing will be moved from its original location in Downey to Taco Bell Headquarters in Irvine.
