DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. It's a tale of two cities and two sisters - twin sisters who delivered two babies at the same time in different time zones. Leah Rodgers gave birth to a son at 1:18 a.m. Mountain time in Denver this past Thursday. Exactly an hour later in La Jolla, Calif., at 1:18 Pacific time, Leah's twin sister, Sarah Mariuz, welcomed a daughter. Neither were surprised by this coincidence, sighting their twintuition (ph). It's MORNING EDITION.
