Australian ABC:Claims that Wizard of Oz munchkins molested Judy Garland deserve a response
Even the staunchest #MeToo applauder would, surely, agree that anyone accused of such an act deserves, at the very least, a right of reply. Especially if trial by media is to be the justice they’re served. To either apologise and attempt to atone for their acts, or to refute the allegations.
Jerry Maren, 98, is the last remaining munchkin from the Wizard of Oz and now lives in a residential home in the US. As such, he’s the last living person who can respond to or refute these allegations.

Brietbart:Khan’s London: Lead Surgeon Says Hospital Like Afghan War Zone, Two More Killed Overnight
Hospitals in Mayor Sadiq Khan’s London resemble those in a war zone, a senior surgeon working to save victims of the capital’s surging violent crime wave has said.
The shock comments made Thursday morning come after two more men were killed overnight, a couple of days after another night of violence saw a boy, 16, stabbed to death and a 17-year-old girl shot in a “drive by”.
Wednesday night’s killings, both in Hackney, East London, brought the death toll from suspected murder in the capital to 50 so far this year, pulling away from New York City, which London overtook at the weekend.
Dr. Mark Griffiths, the lead surgeon at Barts Health NHS Trust in East London, said that knife and gun wounds had moved from a “niche” part of his job to a daily chunk of his workload, and a growing number of victims were “children”.

The Aviation Herald:Accident: Spirit A319 at Boston on Jul 17th 2015, fumes on board, captain died 50 days later
A Spirit Airlines Airbus A319-100, registration N519NK performing flight NK-708 from Chicago O’Hare,IL to Boston,MA (USA), reached the top of descent into Boston when a strong odour of dirty socks occurred, both flight crew became aware of the odour. When ATC called to hand them off to the next frequency, both flight crew were unable to interprete the frequency and unable to select the new frequency until they finally managed to write it down after several repeats by air traffic control and process it from there. Operating increasingly erratically the first officer finally donned his oxygen mask, recovered a bit and recognized that the captain had sunk into his seat and was incapacitated. The first officer put the oxygen mask on the captain, too, who subsequently began to recover as well. The flight crew managed to land the aircraft without further incident, however, did not recall how they managed to land or taxi the aircraft.
