Chris Christie Says His 'Controlled Anger' is a Sign of Passion


Presidential candidate Gov. Chris Christie told NBC's Matt Lauer his temper on the campaign trail shows a "controlled anger" that demonstrates his passion about important issues. "It is an absolute controlled anger. A controlled anger," he told Lauer in an exclusive interview on the day of his presidential announcement. "I'm angry about the fact that taxpayers were being ripped off in New Jersey. I'm angry about the fact that our urban kids can't get a good education. I'm angry about those things, you're darn right I am. And I think America wants someone who's willing to fight for that." Christie has gotten many questions about his temperament and the New Jersey Republican said his anger remains controlled "almost all the time" and that he's lost his temper "very few times" during his governorship.

Woman Stranded in California Forest Starts Wildfire After Giving Birth


A pregnant woman stranded in a Northern California forest says she was forced to give birth alone — but that was just the beginning of her three-day ordeal. Amber Pangborn, 35, said she fended off swarms of bees and mosquitoes, lived off of apples and what little water she happened to have with her, and then started a forest fire that ended up burning out of control, according to NBC affiliate KCRA in Sacramento. "I thought we were going to die," said Pangborn, of Oroville, located just outside Plumas County National Forest. She told the station that she was driving to her parents' home when she felt like she might be going into labor, and decided to take a back road through a remote part of Plumas. Get More at NBC News
