NEW HAMPSHIRE TOWN HALL

Getting left of left: "I'm more progressive than her!" "Pshaw, I'm more progressive than him!" And that was the gist of the CNN town hall tangle between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders last night. The Bern argued Clinton is out of step with the party's base. Exhibit A: her Wall Street ties. Exhibit B: her Iraq War vote. Hilz shot back that she found it funny a socialist should be the "gatekeeper on who's progressive." Meanwhile, on the GOP side, Rick Santorum and Rand Paul are outta here.

    BILL COSBY

    Coz and effect: The show must go on. That's what a Pennsylvania judge ruled yesterday, as Bill Cosby's legal team tried to have the sex assault case against him tossed. They argued a decade-old promise by an ex-DA to never prosecute the comedian should be honored. The judge said no dice. This is the case where an ex-Temple U. employee accused Cosby of assaulting her in his home in 2004. Oh, if she were the only one. There are 50-plus women who've made similar allegations.

    JULIAN ASSANGE

    You can check out anytime you like: Looks like Julian Assange's extended stay at Hotel Ecuador may be coming to an end, one way or the other. The WikiLeaks founder, who's been holed up in Ecuador's embassy in London since 2012, says he'll surrender if he loses an appeal he filed with the U.N. But if he wins, he wants cops to back off. Assange really doesn't want to go to Sweden where he's accused of rape. He's worried he'll just be pawned off to the U.S. where he faces death for spilling all those sensitive state secrets.

    NICOLE LOVELL

    Questions and (few) answers: Thirteen-year-old Nicole Lovell will be put to rest today, but questions remain about her death. The main one: how did she fall into an "inappropriate" relationship with David Eisenhauer, the Virginia Tech student accused of stabbing her to death? It seems social media is definitely involved. Police say Eisenhauer killed Nicole to keep her from exposing their relationship. And how does his classmate, Natalie Keepers, figure in all of this? We may learn more when she goes before a judge today.
    Natalie Keepers and David Eisenhauer have been arrested in the death of Nicole Lovell.

    ZIKA VIRUS

    No, not tonight honey: Ladies, if you're pregnant and he's been to Zika country, you might want to slow your roll. That's advice from the CDC, which updated its virus guidance after someone in Texas contracted the virus through sexual contact. The CDC says pregnant women should protect themselves -- if their partner has been to an area where the virus is circulating -- by abstaining or using condoms. That last part is causing a bit of a theological bugaboo for the Catholic Church, which frowns on nearly every kind of birth control.
