Lil Wayne released his new album, Tha Carter IV, on Monday at midnight. It's been more than three years since his last official, full-length album, the triple-platinum-selling, Grammy-winning Tha Carter III. During the drought Lil Wayne had various legal issues and served eight months in prison. But his fan base has continued to grow, thanks to his digital strategy.
Irene had lost a lot of power when it hit New England as a tropical storm, but that didn't keep it from packing a punch. Roads and bridges were destroyed in Vermont. And in neighboring New York, a dam gave way, flooding homes and businesses downstream.
Airports in the New York area are open again after Tropical Storm Irene grounded more than 12,000 thousand flights over the weekend. But the overall impact on Denver International Airport has been minimal.
