Let’s play some bridge

Who wants to go first? A temporary span across the Skagit River was expected to be open to traffic this morning, the first time I-5 has been fully open to traffic since a truck struck the bridge causing its collapse on May 23. There are a few limitations for the interim bridge. The speed limit is 40 miles per hour, and oversized loads will have to detour around the bridge.

One new feature: On either side of the bridge, motorists can stop and choose from a selection of items to soothe nerves as they cross: Xanax, prayer beads or a rabbit's foot.

Don't know much about history: On this day in 1952, the game show "I've Got A Secret," in which a celebrity panel would question a contestant about his or her "secret," made its debut on CBS-TV.

The Game Show Network has announced plans to bring back a new version of the game show, "Not Anymore, You Don't," in which contestants will guess what the NSA already knows about them.
