kumasi: happening today, the conference of catholic bishops is deciding whether president biden and others should continue to receive communion. jobina: the bishops are meeting today in baltimore on the controversial draft a document. after the meeting last month with pope francis, biden said the pope told him that he should continue receiving communion and the pope called him a "good catholic," but some bishops see things differently, citing the vocal support of abortion rights as key to who can receive communion. this vote is the culmination of years long debates between the largely conservative bishops in the vatican about whether punitive measures should be taken against public officials

6:19 am
it's not as if these stickers are new. kumasi: and they are bright and colorful in most cases and easy to distinguish from the fruit. reggie: you can feel it with your fingers if for some reason you aren't looking. kumasi: and first you need to wash the sticker to see that there is no sticker on there. mike: thank you. that was going to be my point. wash your food, rinse it off and you will find the sticker. kumasi: and if you accidentally bite it, stick it out. >> go to the trash. all these steps.
