good morning to you. it is 5:13 on election morning. an excuse to get out there and vote. nice temperatures. these are expected highs. san jose is 78. oakland is 76. 5:14 right now. new this morning, prosecutors in yemen are changing an al qaeda cleric with killing foreigners. it's the first action taken against the terror network following the interception of two mail bombs in great britain and dubai. he was born in new mexico and linked to terror attacks in the u.s. including the failed bombing last christmas of a jet that was bound for detroit. also today, u.s. officials say that three suspicious packages
found in september may have been a dry run for last week's mail bomb plot in dubai and great britain. officials tracked and intercepted three suspicious packages in mid-september. the packages appear to be sent by the yemeni al qaeda group and the u.s. now suspects that those packages were sent to test the logistics of the system. u.s. authorities seized them and searched them before they reached their destination. >> the u.s. supreme court will decide whether to keep kids away from violent video games. >> the law creates a lot of questions like how violent and who gets to decide and why just video games? leland yee is a child psychologist and california lawmaker who is just about to go into the supreme court to defend the law he helped write. good morning. >> good morning.
>> the way this is written, dr. lee, is it past any court? it never got past any court, has it? >> no t has not and our law is the only bill that survived this far. i'm going to be very, very hopeful that the u.s. supreme court is going to sustain our law or at least provide a pathway as to how we might be able to craft a bill narrowly tailored to sustain a first amendment challenge. >> you say survive. it's been pushed through the courts and never actually gotten into law itself. never been enforced. no court has ever approved it. >> that's right. when the law -- bill was signed into law, we lost that appeal and the u.s. supreme court feels there is merit in our particular law and i think that's the reason why they are holding this
hearing now. >> as a parent myself i understand what it is you are trying to accomplish. is it possible the law is badly written? it was in 2005 that it was written and hasn't been enforced. >> no, that's right. that's more because it's taken this long to get to the u.s. supreme court. as a parent, this bill really helps you because your child cannot go in and purchase an ultra violent video game. if you decide it's appropriate for them, you can buy it for them. that's okay within our law. >> this has been expensive for california. huh to pay the software industry their legal fees each time you lost, correct? >> that's correct, but if the u.s. supreme court sustains our bill, we get all that money back. the main point about this is about protecting kids. there is ample scientific
evidence that demonstrates these ultra violent games are harmful to our children. that's why we are here. >> why video games? why just video games? why not against violent books? >> because i am a strong supporter of the first amendment. >> video games could be covered under the first amend am. >> well, but except for the fact that this bill is narrowly tailored. it's not against all video games. it is a subset of the violent video games that are the ultra violent. these are the interactive types where when you push a button on the console of some sort, you are chopping and maiming individuals. those are not the lessons we ought to be teaching our children. this is the same technology used by the armed forces and also our law enforcement to go after the bad guys and hunt, stalk, and kill them. that technology works.
unfortunately it also works on the children. i don't think that is something we should be promoting. >> we will watch your case very carefully. we appreciate you talking to us before you go into the stream cour -- supreme court. it is a controversial issue with lots of nuance, but we will follow this through the court. >> thanks a lot. new concerns from neurologists this morning across the country about athletes and concussions. neurologists say athletes of all ages who may have suffered a concussion during competition should be evaluated by a specialist before they can return to the sport. the medical community said this is the latest sign of concern over the potential for lasting damage from head jurisdiction. the statement was made by the american act of neurology. doctors continue to emphasize that a concussion is an injury to the brain. >> a state-issued welfare debit card can no longer be used at
medical marijuana shops and psychic reading businesses. governor arnold schwarzenegger said they are inconsistent with the intent of the program. he sent a letter to welfare directors throughout the state saying atms and point of sale card readers in such businesses will be removed from the network that accepts the card. others are bail bond establishments, bingo halls, cruise ships and tattoo parlors. >> time now is 5:21. check in with mike and take a look at the morning commute. >> good morning. we will take you out to san francisco where we have the closure. the portion just north of at&t park, the public house where folks were watching the game and the giants just returned. the crazy party situation out there even no. for safety's sake, they closed that portion of the embarcadere. 280 into the city they are still open as far as as far as the
off-ramps. east shore freeway 18 minutes for the drive and all incidents cleared off and 580 is a nice drive as well. antioch and livermore showing slowing, but right now it's clear as well as the san mateo bridge. we have no major back ups and an easy drive and a clear view on 92. there is a car that is out of gas on the shoulder, but the peninsula is clear and we have people dancing on the streets and a parade ahead. rob as a look at the forecast in a couple of minutes. >> today is election day, but one pub is all about the politics all the time. we will take you inside. we are following the giants. >> is 2-0 is hit high in the air to left center field. back is murphy on the run. a three-run home run, renteria! a 3-0 san francisco lead in the seventh. he won a world series with a base hit in 1997.
that swing of the bat might bring ain champ ionship to san francisco. state budgets cuts are crippling my classroom. they can't believe the sacramento politicians will give our state's wealthiest corporations a new billion dollar tax giveaway. lobbyists have the ear of people who are just thinking about wealth. when you cut the budget, then you cut these students' opportunities. passing prop 24 can change all that. prop 24 repeals the unfair corporate giveaway and puts our priorities first. vote yes on prop 24 because it's time to give our schools a break.
our real national pastime -- and like baseball people love their stats. i started bringing my lunch to work. 50 bucks a week in my pocket. here's a good one -- state farm insures 40 million drivers. more than geico and progressive combined. i save because i'm accident-free. of course, with so many ways to save, including discounts of up to 40%, having that many customers shouldn't be a surprise. so ask a neighbor about state farm. then call an agent at 1-800-state-farm, or go online. he finally came clean. what did you lie about when you were governor? it's all a lie. what did you lie about? you run for office and the assumption is, oh, i know what to do. you don't. i didn't have a plan for california. you say you are going to lower taxes. you're gonna put people to work. you're gonna improve the schools.
you're gonna stop crime. crime is up. schools are worse. taxes are higher. i mean be real. i didn't have a plan for california. it's all a lie. good morning to you. 5:24 and let's take to you san jose. a nice start to the morning and 53 with a little bit of jacket weather and patches of fog here and there. 55 in oakland and san francisco,
tim lincecum's number, 55 degrees. no fog, but the city is buzzing for all of the excitement yesterday. champions parade in san francisco is for tomorrow around 11:00. we will see 70s around san francisco. absolutely gorgeous weather as we head towards the middle of the week. the satellite shows you the reason why they warm up. the ridge of high pressure way off to the north. it should stay here from now until thursday. the temperatures climb on up and we could see temperatures as warm as the 80s. if you are out on the coast, high surf around the coastline. waves from 15 to 17 feet at times. look at san francisco. east bay temperatures and approaching 80 perhaps in the east bay hills later this afternoon. for the north bay highs in the 70s. the seven-day forecast looks
outstanding for today. election day and tomorrow giants parade looks fine and the weekend, stay tuned. may need to dust off the umbrellas. maybe a few scattered showers for the weekend. >> most people think of bars in pubs as a place to visit with friends over a few beers. they are the gathering place to talk politics. the grand ol' pub will be packed on election day. there is no coincident that the pub's initials are gop. next to the sandwiches and chips are a constitution. police and firefighters are honored and so is the menu. >> the recipes were given to us by the westchester firefighters. each month we will feature a sandwich recipe from one of the local firefighters. >> we are told the democrats also enjoy eating at the gop. everybody is welcome at the gop. >> i bet.
it's 5:26 right now. back in the bay area, the giants plane touching down early this morning and the fans were out early to see them come home. we will take you back live to the park where the mayhem is happening. >> getting your hands on world series merchandise. the giants were wearing shirts and hats celebrating their win. how to get some coming up next. and a commute. look at the golden gate bridge moving across nicely. we will check the bridges, by ways and get youif out thhe's the door wif that's where you are headed. come on in, and i'll give you a free quote. quote and compare in about 8 minutes. now, that's progressive. call or click today.
she's against banning assault weapons... and that's reckless and dangerous. she's for risky new oil drilling that could threaten our jobs. fiorina's plan would mean slashing social security and medicare, which would devastate seniors. and she'd make abortion a crime. no wonder fiorina is endorsed by sarah palin. carly fiorina. just too extreme for california. [ boxer ] i'm barbara boxer and i approve this message.

here in san francisco. normally they open at 9:00 this morning. they are opening at 7:00. they have a team of workers who have been in here all night, putting everything together. what they are telling me is this is the 1 that the giants are going to be wearing. this is the hot seller. it's the hot seller because it has the roster on the back. we looked at the shelves and they have three left. they may be getting more and we wanted to show you quickly too. we had calls from the newsroom asking about the hat. it's 29.99. here with me is jeff with sports thrd. you have been seeing a huge crew. >> since the playoffs started, giants fans have been showing up and buying up the product as quick as they can get printed in the buildings. it's a great experience. >> this is the other one right here that you have quite a few of. a lot of people are interested

photos from the world series victory. >> the world series is decided, but today's election day will be decided throughout the day. live now in the election center with what you need to know. >> a lot of candidates hope there is champagne left over. whether or not you agree that all politicians are the same, there big propositions you may want to pay attention to. let's start with prop 19. not a lot of advertising dollars on this one, but certainly a lot of buzz. it would legalize and regulate recreational marijuana use. the latest poll show that it is failing which is 42% of voters backing that one. on to prop 23 which puts a hold on california's green house gas emission standards until the economy stays steady for 12 months. 48% of likely votes surveyed said they will vote no. on prop 25, this has to do with
the budget to change the vote to pass a budget to a simple majority. that really seems to strangle the process every year. 48% of fed up and will say yes on that. they close at 8:00 tonight and that's when we start our coverage on channel 11-2 and comcast 186. at 9:00 tonight right here on nbc bay area, the news political team will begin coverage of the national races. we have a couple of those as well followed by an hour long 11:00 election night newscast. coming up in about 10 minutes, we will talk about voter turn out and you might be surprised about how many people are expected to turn out this year. >> are 5:36 is the time and let me take you out to antioch. we see the slowing for westbound highway 4, 30 miles per hour.

our state is in a real mess. and i'm not going to give you any phony plans or snappy slogans that don't go anywhere. we have to make some tough decions. we have to live within our means. we have got to take the power from the state capitol and move it down to the local level, closer to the people. and no new taxes, without voter approval.
we have got to pull together not as republicans or as democrats but as californians first. at this stage in my life, i'm prepared to do exactly that.

good morning. take a live look at the bay bridge this morning. lots of folks can be streaming into the city tomorrow for the big welcome home parade for the world champion san francisco giants. that race is decided. the election is not yet. i'm chris sanchez for the today in the bay election center. folks are heading to the polls to cast ballots in the mid-term election and usually they have much lower voter turn out than the presidential elections. this could be different. live in washington, d.c. with the hotly contested races that could actually boost voter turn out. good morning. >> good morning. so we are looking at a couple of races and several of them out west to see what they say about the picture here in washington. whether or not republicans will sweep the elections as
predicted. nevada is the hot race between sharron angle and harry reid. the three-way senate race in alaska and the senate race with barbara boxer and carly fiorina in california and the governor's race. that is definitely on the mind of the nation as well. the big question, will californians turn out in droves as expected? last mid-term four years ago, 41% of californians voted. the prediction this time is 55%. willingly, some say for the first time there could be more mail in ballots in california than votes cast on election day. what will drive voters out on this day? you have a hot governor's race and senate race and prop 19, the marijuana initiative. all driving voters to the polls today. finally what about the gop? the big question today is will they be able to turn out the vote? will republicans be able to
sweep the elections? in california the predictions are there will be a lot more republicans at the polls than democrats. >> tracie potts, we will be watching you all morning. don't forget for all the coverage before, during, and after, you can go to our prop zero site to find all kinds of insight from our political analyst and also all of the different coverage we had leading up to today which is of course election day, 2010. >> time now is 5:43. good morning and thanks for joining us. >> i'm laura garcia cannon. want to save time on the commute? >> we have a new accident just in in the last minute. northbound 880, a reported near whipple road. four cars reported involved in the middle lanes. this could cause a bit of an issue. also reported in an accident at thornton. sounds similar to this accident and they're close to one
