More than three-thousand people are dead from earthquakes that ravaged Turkey and Syria. Just over half of those deaths have occurred in Turkey. The first quake was a magnitude seven-point-eight and the second tremor was just below that.       The White House says the flying of a suspected Chinese surveillance balloon over the U.S. is unacceptable. The Press secretary today said China's irresponsible actions were visible for Americans and the world to see. The U.S. military is currently recovering debris from the balloon that was shot down off the coast of South Carolina this weekend.        Abortion may still be a constitutional right despite the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade last summer. A Washington, DC judge said the Thirteenth Amendment may include reproductive rights. She said the Supreme Court's ruling only concluded that the Fourteenth Amendment didn't have a right to abortion       Wall Street is closing lower to start the week as bond yields rise. Investors took some profits while weighing the latest batch of corporate earnings. At the closing bell, the Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 35 points to 33-891. The S&P 500 fell 25 points to 41-11. The Nasdaq lost 119 points to 11-887.       The National Enquirer is being sold. The celebrity tabloid became known for suppressing negative stories about former President Trump during his 2016 campaign. That included an alleged affair Trump had with a former Playboy model. A360 Media is selling the publication to VVIP Ventures in a cash deal for an undisclosed price.       Beachgoers in Texas now have something to talk about after headless carcasses of goats, chickens and a pigeon were found Sunday on Galveston Island, southeast of Houston. Cops say it appears to be the remains of a Santeria animal sacrifice. The religious ceremony is considered a protected act of faith and is legal.         ### Nikki Link/jm
