"All-In For Week 3" doesn't quite have the same ring to it, does it? No, it's not catchy. It's not what Carson Wentz wanted. But that's what the Philadelphia Eagles have done with Wentz, their third-year franchise quarterback coming back from the knee injury in December that cut short what otherwise might have been a league MVP season for him in 2017.
On the January morning in 2015 when he turned himself in to police in West Hollywood for his role in a deadly hit-and-run, gangster rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight was oozing Teflon confidence. As rapper KXNG Crooked recounted to Rolling Stone six months later, Knight puffed on a cigar before heading into custody. Knight - a hulking 6-foot-2 with a colossal frame that once landed him on a pro football roster - reached up into a tree, stashing the burning butt in the branches for later.
WASHINGTON - An attorney for Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were teenagers, said Thursday that her appearing at a hearing on Monday to detail her claims is "not possible" but she could testify later in the week. Debra Katz, Ford's lawyer, relayed the response to top staffers on the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, requesting to set up a call with them to "discuss the conditions under which [Ford] would be prepared to testify next week."
Talk to your grandparents about marijuana - before somebody else does. The latest release of a massive federal drug use survey shows monthly marijuana use has skyrocketed among older Americans. The past decade, in fact, has seen a sea change in the demographics of marijuana use: As recently as the early 2000s, teens were more than four times more likely to use marijuana than 50 and 60 somethings. But as of 2017, Americans age 55 to 64 are now slightly more likely to smoke pot on a monthly basis than teens age 12 to 17. That difference is within the survey's margin of error.
WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump lashed out at Congress on Thursday for failing to deliver his long-promised border wall, unleashing a tweet that accused Democrats of "obstructing" border security and demanded that "REPUBLICANS MUST FINALLY GET TOUGH!" The trouble for Trump is that it's his own GOP allies - not just his political opponents - who have been standing in the way.
Valentino Dixon had never been golfing before. But from his drawings, it seemed he spent his life on the green. He drew hundreds of pictures of golf courses from prison - bright green landscapes beneath surreal golden skies, sometimes bordered by mountains or divided by streams. He drew his first one because the warden at Attica Correctional Facility asked him to, as a favor. He drew the next several dozen because, serving 38 years to life for a 1991 murder for which he always maintained his innocence, he needed an escape.
North Dakota -- home to the fourth-smallest U.S. population -- is suddenly finding itself at the center of the escalating trade war between the world's largest economies.
In the great dining dilemma of the Trump administration, there is no neutral territory. To serve is to face accusations of normalization, even complicity. Not to serve is to be tarred as uncivil, lacking proper table manners. This was the painful lesson learned by the Red Hen of Lexington, Virginia, in June, when the restaurant's staff refused to serve White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
WASHINGTON - Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., a frequent White House foe, lashed out at Donald Trump Jr. on Wednesday after the president's son appeared to mock the woman who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh of sexual assault. President Donald Trump has been increasingly vocal in his defense of Kavanaugh since a confidential letter that detailed assault allegations became public, but he has largely stayed away from publicly challenging the accuser's credibility - unlike his eldest son.
A federal judge set sentencing for Dec. 18 for Michael Flynn, President Donald Trump's former national security adviser, who admitted lying to the FBI about contacts with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in special counsel Robert Mueller III's probe. U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan of the District of Columbia set the date in a court order Tuesday after prosecutors and attorneys for Flynn, in a joint filing Monday, requested sentencing between Nov. 28 and Dec. 7.
