(CNN) – Welcome to CNN Radio News Day.

  • The manhunt continued in Southern California Friday for suspected cop killer Christopher Dorner.  The former LAPD officer is accused of killing three people, including two police officers.  In an 11 page manifesto posted online, Dorner promised war against the police.  CNN's Barbara Hall speaks with Dr. Michael Mantell, a clinical  psychologist who worked for several years with the San Diego Police Department.

"His pathological narcissism, his sense of being better than anyone else and devaluing others has gone on probably most of his life," says Dorner. FULL POST

(CNN) – A community in Brooklyn is fighting to keep its local hospital, Long Island College Hospital (LICH), open. However, it's drowning in debt.

Community activists like Joanne Simon says closing LICH would create a significant problem for many in the neighborhood.

[1:41] “Well there would be very few options for a lot of people. You know, there aren’t enough institutional resources, medical resources, to absorb the population and this is an area that’s growing in terms of population.”

Dr. John Williams, president of SUNY Downstate Medical Center, which owns LICH, says he has no other option but to close the community hospital.

(CNN) - Way before Matchmaker.com, and eHarmony, and J-Date, in the days before 21st century computer technology - when mobile meant the fascinating object above your crib - there was: Operation Match.

The year was 1965.

Harvard was still all-male. Two of its lonely, single, undergrads were hoping to meet women. They figured, so were a lot of other students.

So these two Harvard guys developed a computer program and a questionnaire for young men and women.

Their system caught on at single-sex colleges across the nation.

One of the original 135 questions on that very first computer dating system: “Do you believe in a God who answers prayer?”

I know all this because I read Chapter 5 of “Data, A Love Story,” the new book by our guest on our pre-Valentine’s Day edition of CNN Profiles, Amy Webb.
