Woman Behind The NYPD Officer "Boots" Photo
Jennifer Foster, a tourist from Arizona, was walking around Times Square several days ago when she saw a man, who appeared to be homeless. He was on the sidewalk asking for change as his bare feet were exposed to the near freezing New York weather. Without any fan fair, an NYPD officer bent down on a knee and gave the man a brand-new pair of winter boots and socks. Foster used her cellphone to take a picture of the act of kindness - which rocketed instantly across social media websites across the globe. Officer Larry DePrimo, 25, was identified hours later. The New York Times said he lives with his parents on Long Island. Foster joined Sean in the show's final hour to discuss what she witnessed and how it reminded her of childhood memories of her own father, a Phoenix police officer. The photo was posted on the NYPD's Facebook site Tuesday with a description of the scene provided to the department by Foster. "I have been in law enforcement for 17 years," Foster wrote. "I was never so impressed in my life." To listen to Sean's entire heart warming discussion with Jennifer Foster please click here.
Questions Surface About Rice's History At State Department
New troubles have developed for Ambassador Susan Rice. Questions have surfaced about her time at the State Department when Al Qaeda bombed two African embassies in the late '90s, and how the situation parallels what happened prior to the terror attack in Benghazi that left four Americans dead. Republican Senator Susan Collins met with Ambassador Rice for 90 minutes, and after the closed-door meeting, the senator questioned Rice's role at the State Department back in 1998 when she served as the assistant secretary of state for African affairs in the Clinton administration. The comparisons are eerily similar. It gets worse. After the attacks in '98, Susan Rice was put out by the administration at the time to go on PBS and talk about the attack. Rice's explanation back in 1998 sounds an awful lot like her explanation of what happened in Benghazi this year.

Diary of A Stage Mother's Daughter
Melissa Francis, host on the Fox Business Network and author of the newly released book "Diary of Stage Mother's Daughter," joined Sean in the second hour of Friday's show. Francis' book, a memoir of her life as a child star, tells the startling tale of a family under the care of a highly neurotic and dangerously competitive "tiger mother." Now the mother of two young children, Melissa knows from personal experience that the key to raising happy, confident and successful children is to respect each child for who they are, and avoid the one size fits all, pressure-packed approach.
