Forget Brad and Angelina — a much more sinister tabloid headline has captured Hollywood’s attention this week, and inspired grim, rampant speculation about whether a famous actor repeatedly raped a now-deceased child star. Radar Online last week published a bombshell report claiming to know the identity of a beloved male star who sexually abused an underage Corey Haim in the prime of his career. Haim died at age 38, of pneumonia, in 2010. The report, commonly referred to as a “blind item,” contends that the widely known entertainer and family man used his influence to commit the horrific acts — all part of a wider ring of alleged Hollywood pedophilia that Radar has been investigating for four years.
At least three gunmen were seen shooting and wounding eight people in eastern Baltimore in a fresh attack. While all three suspects are still at large, the police said a three-year-old girl, who was not an intended target, was among the wounded.
Florida’s Quincy Wilson guaranteed the Gators would continue their decade-long win streak against Tennessee, saying "nobody has ever seen a duck pull a truck." He didn’t just talk off the field: He also got into a skirmish with a Vol on the field.That earned him an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. But, more importantly, what exactly did he rip off his opponent and toss in the air?It’s probably a piece of the Tennessee player’s shoulder pad. ...
Times are hard and confusing, but Michelle Obama gives a hug that could cure all ills. At the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington D.C. Saturday, the First Lady enveloped President George W. Bush in an embrace for the ages. He seemed to enjoy it, and the whole affair did not escape the internet's notice. Decide for yourself whether Bush deserves that great hug given his record (*clears throat*), but it looks like America appreciated it nevertheless.

You could tell George Bush enjoyed that hug!! #FLOTUS https://t.co/KDkkmWhasi — Alicia Shockness (@AliShock0917) September 24, 2016 The across-the-political-aisle gesture was not even the most heartwarming moment from the event — not by a long shot. Ruth Bonner, 99, the daughter of a man born a slave in Mississippi who ran to freedom, helped ring the bell to officially open the museum, with several generations of her family looking on. During his speech, President Barack Obama told Bonner's incredible history with his customary eloquence. The bell also had its own story, having been taken from the First Baptist Church in Virginia, a historic black church.

Europe and Asia, taken together, are the heart of humanity. That’s where 5 billion out of the 7 billion people in the world live. When instability comes to this part of the world, it shakes humanity. That’s why the geopolitical pattern developing in Eurasia is so ominous. It is like a hurricane—absorbing huge amounts of energy from the ocean, using that energy to build a vast, integrated structure, and then destroying whatever it touches. The Eurasian landmass is the main source of that kind of energy in the world. When the various regions start to destabilize and then join together, it creates a geopolitical storm. We are now watching to see whether a hurricane will form. Parallels with World
DEAR ABBY: I lost my longtime job but have remained in contact with a few former co-workers, meeting for an occasional lunch or dinner. One woman in particular has been pushing to meet at my place. Abby, I’m not proud of where I live now, and I don’t want to have to explain this to her. So far, I have side-stepped by saying that I prefer to get out of the house, but I’m worried that one day she will announce that she’s “in my neighborhood” and ask to drop by. I’m really uncomfortable with that, but I don’t know an appropriate response that will keep our relationship cordial, because I do value the times we see each other. Any suggestions? — DOWNSCALE IN DELAWARE DEAR DOWNSCALE: There are various
