Latest upgrade I can find on HRClinton’s incident this morning, from the NYTimes:
… Mrs. Clinton was taken from the morning event at ground zero to the Manhattan apartment of her daughter, Chelsea. About 90 minutes after arriving there, Mrs. Clinton emerged from the apartment in New York’s Flatiron district and waved to onlookers, posing for pictures with a little girl on the sidewalk.
“I’m feeling great,” Mrs. Clinton said. “It’s a beautiful day in New York.”
Mrs. Clinton left in her motorcade without the group of reporters that is designated to travel with her in public. A campaign spokesman, Nick Merrill, indicated that she returned to her Chappaqua, N.Y., residence after 1 p.m., but did not give an exact time.
Mr. Merrill described the Democratic presidential nominee only as feeling “overheated” during the commemoration ceremony that morning…[Rep. Peter T.] King said it was hot enough that officials working at the event offered the dignitaries bottles of water as they stood. But he noted that he did not see anybody accept a bottle.
The congressman, who served alongside Mrs. Clinton when she was in the Senate, said he could not recall Mrs. Clinton suffering any medical episodes at any of the public events he had attended with her…
In other news, I had intended to post this before today’s game:

How about an event where saluting idiots go a stadium and listen to patriotic songs and leave the rest of us who want to watch sports alone.

According to the Palm Beach Post [warning: autoplay], the Seahawks players modified their protest with a plan for all players to stand with their arms interlinked during the anthem. Some of the players on the opposing teams, the Dolphins, chose to protest themselves by kneeling. The usual suspects are taking this very, very seriously.
What else is on the agenda for the evening?
