USAToday:America’s Pastor has gone home
Billy Graham finished the race well at 99. See the YouTube clip of Woody Allen and Billy Graham’s one-time talk show in the show notes.
Follow-up on Ohio Shooting.
For all I can find the student has not perished.
FoxNews:2 newborns found dead inside suitcase along Arkansas road
The Cross County Sheriff’s Office says a preliminary autopsy found that the babies, believed to be twins, had a gestational age of about 32 to 34 weeks, or about six to eight weeks premature.
The bodies were discovered Friday afternoon in a purple suitcase along a county road in Cross County, about 90 miles northeast of Little Rock.
LATimes:Authorities say Whittier school shooting plot thwarted
An on-campus security officer at El Camino High School overheard the student threaten to shoot up the school and alerted deputies Friday, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Investigators seized a “collection of weapons and ballistic evidence” from the student’s home, authorities said.
Cbsnews:California Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia denies groping accusations
Or to put that another way, #MeToo is officially over.
A California state lawmaker at the forefront of the #MeToo movement faces a growing number of sexual misconduct allegations herself. Four former employees filed a formal complaint against Democratic Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia. Another says he was fired after protesting when she suggested playing “spin the bottle.”
As a #MeToo activist, she’s called on those accused of harassment to resign immediately – but she does not plan to do so herself.
Sydney morning herald:Wife and lover guilty of murdering husband with cyanide-laced juice
On Wednesday, a jury at the Supreme Court in Melbourne found Kamalasanan and Sam guilty of murdering her husband after a three-week trial.
Kamalasanan, 35, showed no emotion as the verdict was announced, while Sam, 33, sobbed as she was led into custody by guards. Both had pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Kyodo:Finnish minister warns crumbling world order will lead to “abyss”
Finnish Foreign Minister Timo Soini on Wednesday expressed strong concern about Russian expansionism and the nuclear threat presented by North Korea, and warned that the erosion of postwar norms will see the world “sleepwalking towards the abyss once again.”
At a press conference in Tokyo ahead of a meeting with his Japanese counterpart Taro Kono, Soini urged Japan to continue to work with Finland to uphold the international order as basic freedoms fall under increasing pressure in many countries.
“International treaties are under challenge, or are being interpreted in ways which risk making them meaningless,” Soini said.
What in the world is he talking about?
Japan and Finland cooperate in a number of areas including arms anti-proliferation and climate change.
Soini is retired from politics so I guess that means he’s a lobbyist. Like Tony Blair, former Presidents, senators.
