ADDIS, Louisiana — On Sunday, July 17, Damarcus Alexander stopped at Walmart so his best friend could buy a white shirt for church. They left Dallas, Texas at 4 a.m. bound for Belle Rose, Louisiana, a small town an hour south of Baton Rouge, so his friend could sing at a church. They entered the Walmart outside of Baton Rouge, they changed into their church clothes, and continued driving. They didn’t know it but someone had just called 911 describing two black men entering the store and changing clothes just after Gavin Long shot six law enforcement officers across the river. One of the three dead was Alexander’s cousin, Montrell Jackson. He was my big cuz,” Alexander said, adding their families
I was working at a hotel and in a torrid, heartbreaking (for me, at least) on-and-off relationship with a guy who was, in the words of Hannah Horvath, "someone who treats my heart like monkey meat." It consisted of nothing more than me driving an hour out of my way every weekend to have a ...

For generations, kids have begged their parents for a pet dog. It's essentially a childhood rite of passage, right up there with learning to ride a bike and threatening to run away from home. But only a few parents have likely drafted a legally binding "family dog contract" and went on to have each child sign the document before agreeing to add a furry friend to the household. Herein is one of those parents. Father to Amy, Jessica, Casey, and Samantha, this dad created a 13-point contract and posted it to Imgur — possibly to make it hold up in a court of law? — before it went viral for its head-scratching requirements. For instance, although the dad gets full veto power over the dog's name and
PHILADELPHIA — If James Murdoch and Lachlan Murdoch are looking for a moment in which to make a statement about their vision for Fox News, now is it. These two brothers — sons of mogul Rupert Murdoch and two-thirds of the triumvirate at Fox News parent company 21st Century Fox — are widely known to have resented the way that recently resigned Fox News chief Roger Ailes ran the network. Well, it’s been a week since Ailes left, and his offensive style of broadcasting lives on. On Wednesday night, host Bill O’Reilly took to the network’s airwaves to attempt a defense of his comments of last night regarding first lady Michelle Obama’s Monday night speech here at the Democratic National Convention.
