Chairman Robert Sumwalt said at the start of a hearing Tuesday that partially automated driving systems like Tesla's Autopilot cannot drive themselves.

‘My wife made a fool of me.’ She secretly saved $40K and didn’t mention she was fired 6 months ago. I drove an Uber on weekends to pay the bills. What should I do?
I have been committed to making the marriage work, and I'm trying to give my daughter a stable, loving family environment. But about four months ago our arguments became more severe.

Stephen Colbert began his live coverage of the Democratic debate that took place in his hometown of Charleston, South Carolina, Tuesday night by noting just how much of a trainwreck it was.“These folks said a lot of words, and I did not hear many of them,” the Late Show host remarked. “Because these candidates were speaking all over each other.” Colbert had jokes about all seven of the remaining contenders, but his harshest material was reserved for former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg—especially his failure to give a sufficient answer on his controversial use of the stop-and-frisk policy.

But he pressed on, covering Elizabeth Warren’s latest takedown of the mayor’s non-disclosure agreements as well as Bloomberg’s lame attempts to make jokes during the debate. “Oh, OK, now I understand why he asks people to sign an NDA after he tells a joke,” Colbert said. “No one wants to remember that.” As for Bloomberg’s odd Naked Cowboy joke, the host added, “Now, for those of you who don’t live in New York City, there’s this crazy man who wanders around the city and will not leave people alone. And that man’s name is Mike Bloomberg.” For more, listen and subscribe to The Last Laugh podcast. Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?
