Connecticut... reports of a gunman near the campus of Yale had police blocking off several streets in New Haven. The school was put on lockdown this morning, and students and staff were advised to shelter in place. The Yale campus was relatively empty, since the school is on Thanksgiving break; classes are scheduled to resume December 2nd. No gunman was ever found...

South Carolina... more than 200 passengers got stuck on an Amtrak train from New York to New Orleans. It went off the tracks just after midnight in Spartanburg County. The cars on the train did not tip over, and none of the 218 people on board had any serious injuries, but it became a travel nightmare. Passengers were driven by charter bus all the way back up to Washington D.C., where they were then transferred to another train...

Arizona... bottoms up!!! Phoenix gets a little boozy for its 5th annual tequila fest at U.S. Airways Arena. Attendees had a chance to sample more than 100 of the finest brands and varieties. Live music from Mariachi to rock bands enhanced the atmosphere. There was also a margarita challenge featuring hand-crafted drinks and a Habanero chili pepper eating contest. And that's the last drop on this USA Update.
