And a Happy Halloween to you and yours. Here in the Des Moines, Iowa Metro many communities do "Beggar's Night" the evening before Halloween because in 1938 some folks got out of hand and tipped over outhouses. Not making that up. What's in the news? That Verified Blue Check on Twitter…worth $240 a year? The Dow has its biggest monthly gain since 1976 and Elon Musk and a conspiracy theory about Paul Pelosi…. And, it’s just the beginning. Also, remember that you can hook up with us all day on Twitter @IOB_NewsHour and on Instagram. Here's what we've got for you today:
- We're not sure charging for verification is a good thing;
