  • Mother of three survives car crash — only to be gunned down by the other driver, police say

    Deborah Pearl was driving to work Saturday morning through the local streets of Solon, Ohio, a Cleveland suburb so serene that Money magazine last year named it one of the top 10 places to live in the United States. It was just after 7 a.m. when the 53-year-old mother of three cruised through an intersection and a man in a sport-utility vehicle ran a red light, slamming into the driver’s side of Pearl’s Ford Taurus, police reports would later say. The intensity of the crash caused Pearl’s car to skid across the intersection and the SUV to roll several times until it came to a rest flipped upside down, police reports said. Police and other officials would later identify the man as a former U.S. Marine, one who had been deployed to Iraq twice.

  • Iceland unearths rock to appease angry elves

    Iceland has been forced to bow to pressure from elves and uncover a supposedly enchanted elfin rock after highway workers accidentally buried it -- infuriating the mythical creatures, reports said Tuesday. The angry elves were suspected of causing a series of mishaps after the rock was covered over when workers cleared away the debris from a landslide, the Morgunbladid daily reported. Iceland is no stranger to bending to the will of its elfin population.

  • After Being Stared Down by a Couple in Cracker Barrel, This Dad Received a Note About Parenting

    When Kevon Smith Sr. sat down for breakfast at Cracker Barrel with his son Kevon Jr. in Willoughby, OH, he had no idea he was going to make headlines just for being a good dad. Kevon noticed a couple staring and smiling at him and his 3-month-old son, and although he was confused, he just went on with the meal. "I noticed this older couple over in the corner," he said. "They kept smiling at me and I was looking at my son like, 'What is going on?'" But when Kevon left the restaurant, it all made sense, as he saw a note on his car from the couple praising his parenting along with cash to cover his breakfast. "Today your meal is on my wife and me," it read. "Enjoy that baby as long as God intends.

  • Democrats to GOP: Don't use internal memo hacked by Russians

    If Russian hackers who breached Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee computers wanted to jostle the left, they’ve certainly succeeded. Officials at the House Democratic campaign arm appear very worried that their negative assessments about their own candidates, which were hacked and released publicly by a group linked to Russian intelligence, will be used against them by Republicans. DCCC Chairman Ben Ray Luján, in a letter Monday to his counterpart, National Republican Campaign Committee Chairman Greg Walden, asked the Oregon Republican to bar all Republicans from using the DCCC internal memo with the damaging information in ads against Democrats.

  • ‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 7 Spoilers: Jon Snow Is The First Crossing Between Stark And Targaryen

    The Game of Thrones season 6 finale confirmed what fans have practically known for years: That Jon Snow is no son of Ned Stark’s. Instead, he’s the child of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, his parenthood kept a secret to save the boy’s life from Ned’s own best friend, Robert Baratheon. He was born because Rhaegar was trying to fulfill prophecies that the prince that was promised would come from his father’s line, and that “the dragon must have three heads.” And it was no accident that Rhaegar chose Lyanna—for the Starks had never before intermarried with the Targaryens. Jon Snow is the first time that ice and fire have met as one. The Targaryens ruled Westeros for the better part of three

  • Obama order on contractor workplace violations takes effect soon, despite objections

    Obama administration officials are preparing to implement a controversial two-year-old executive order that will give agencies greater ability to deny federal contracts to companies with labor-law violations. Once the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces executive order is fully implemented, potential contractors must report violations covering 14 workplace protections from the previous three years. Any requirement Uncle Sam places on federal contractors is far reaching because the government does a lot of business with a lot of businesses. Government contractors employ 26 million workers, about 22 percent of the nation’s workforce, according to a 2013 Senate report. “Our tax dollars shouldn’t go to

  • Vladimir Putin Was Arrested in a Florida Supermarket

    Vladimir Putin was arrested at a West Palm Beach supermarket on Monday, CNN reports, but the charges do not, sadly, include espionage. No, this particular Vladimir Putin found screaming at employees at a Publix grocery story was not the former KGB agent turned Russian authoritarian leader. This Vladimir Putin happens to be from the state of Florida. When police arrived at the scene,Putin told them he had "missed his ride," which CNN wisely points out would never happen to Russia Man Vladimir Putin. Florida Man Vladimir Putin also refused to give his name to police, according to their report, which pretty much makes sense. He was charged with "resisting and/or obstructing an officer without violence."

  • Jewish avengers unapologetic for targeting Nazis after WWII

    TEL AVIV, Israel –  Seventy years after the most daring attempt of Jewish Holocaust survivors to seek revenge against their former tormentors, the leader of the plot has only one simple regret — that to his knowledge he didn't actually succeed in killing any Nazis. Joseph Harmatz is one of the few remaining Jewish "Avengers" who carried out a mass poisoning of former SS men in an American prisoner-of-war camp in 1946 that sickened more than 2,200 Germans but ultimately caused no known deaths. A recently declassified U.S. military report obtained by The Associated Press has only added to the mystery of why the brazen operation did not kill Nazis, because it shows the amount of arsenic used should have been fatal to tens of thousands. "We didn't want to come back (to pre-state Israel) without having done something, and that is why we were keen," Harmatz said in a hoarse, whispery voice from his apartment in north Tel Aviv.
