ChicagoTribune:Chicago homicides down 25 percent, shootings down 30 percent from violent 2016 and 2017
The number of people shot in 2018 is down about 30 percent from the past two years. But as with homicides, shootings continue to outpace victims from 2012, 2013 and 2014, the Tribune figures show.
So far this year, 370 people have been shot and there have been at least 82 homicides. In 2016 at this time, at least 520 had been shot and there had been 109 homicides; in 2017, at least 540 shot and 108 homicides.
The toll from this past weekend was one person killed and nine others wounded, including three children injured in the same attack, according to authorities.
Kyodo:Japan perplexed over agreement on inter-Korea summit
In a Mexican stand off of diplomacy, where everybody is waiting to see who’s going to flinch…
Tokyo is concerned that Pyongyang may be buying time to further develop its nuclear weapons. “We have an impression that things are moving quite enthusiastically,” a government official said, apparently stunned by the growing conciliatory mood after numerous missile tests and other provocations.
The head of a group of 17 families of Japanese nationals abducted by North Korea decades ago called on the Japanese government to use the latest development as a “chance” to resolve the abduction issue.
“We are hoping for the early return of the victims by any means no matter what the situation may be,” said 79-year-old Shigeo Iizuka, whose younger sister Yaeko Taguchi was kidnapped in 1978 at age 22.

DallasMorningNews:Tax preparer accused of filing bogus returns files bogus returns while awaiting trial, feds say
Jimmy Luis Briseno was lucky for someone facing a felony tax fraud charge.
Briseno, who ran a tax preparation business, got a break in 2016 when a federal judge granted his request to work at a related mailing business while awaiting trial on the tax case. The mailing business is located in the same Garland and Mesquite offices where he operates his tax preparation service, Tax Genius, according to court records.
So the judge did not look kindly when learning from the IRS that Briseno, 46, was back to his old tricks, submitting fraudulent tax returns for clients. During a Feb. 27 revocation hearing, U.S. Magistrate Renee Toliver sent the Sunnyvale man back behind bars where he will stay until his trial.
RT:Syria War: What the mainstream media isn’t telling you about Eastern Ghouta
Syria is perhaps the most heavily propagandized civil war in history. Tens of millions of dollars have been spent by Western governments and their regional allies building a media apparatus that sanitizes the insurgency, blames all of the violence on the government and agitates for more forceful Western military intervention against Syrian president Bashar Assad. And Western media outlets have come to rely on these propaganda sources for information about the conflict.

Warhistoryonline:Wreckage from the USS Lexington (CV-2) Located in the Coral Sea 76 Years after the Aircraft Carrier was Sunk
The USS Lexington was originally commissioned as a battlecruiser but was launched as an aircraft carrier in 1925. She took part in the Battle of the Coral Sea (May 4-8, 1942) along with the USS Yorktown against three Japanese carriers. This was the first carrier versus carrier battle in history and was the first time Japanese forces suffered a permanent setback in its advances on New Guinea and Australia. However, the U.S. lost the Lexington and 216 of its distinguished crew.
