Judge orders water bottles delivered to Flint, Mich., homes

Flint water plantA federal judge ordered Flint, Mich., leaders to provide home delivery of bottled water to households that have not been properly fitted with water filters to protect against further lead contamination.

U.S. District Judge David Lawson said city and state governments must provide at least four cases of water per person every week as a way to help those who cannot pick up supplies from distribution sites located throughout the city. Lawson said residents must be given the home-delivery option unless the government can prove the home has a well-installed and maintained water filter or if the household declines the water.

Robert Vaughn Dies: ‘Man From U.N.C.L.E’ Star Was 83

Robert Vaughan diesRobert Vaughn, whose Napoleon Solo on NBC’s spy yarn The Man From U.N.C.L.E. set TV’s 1960s standard for suavity and crimebusting cool, died this morning after a brief battle with acute leukemia. He was 83. His manager Matthew Sullivan confirmed the news to Deadline.

Vaughn’s lengthy list of credits includes everything from an uncreditedrole in The Ten Commandments to his angry, shouting audience member on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, but he will no doubt be remembered for Napoleon Solo, television’s answer to James Bond. U.N.C.L.E. aired from 1964-68, and paired Vaughn’s elegant, dark-haired Solo with David McCallum’s blond Russian Illya Kuryakin, an early example of Cold War detente in the battle against global evildoers.


The foul stench of fascism in the US

American fascism Throughout this summer and autumn, I have interviewed fellow minorities, asking them about their feelings and experiences regarding this presidential election. In all of these interviews, one thing was clear: We knew this was coming.

To some of us, it hung like a foul smell in the air. The acrid stench that generations before somehow learned to live with, though it choked them. Many of us coughed and spluttered when that suffocating air filled our lungs. Some of us cried out in warning.

Pro-pot advocates score huge victories

Pro pot advocates score victoriesVoters in three states voted to legalize the use of marijuana for recreational purposes on Tuesday, and four more states voted to allow marijuana use for medicinal purposes, the largest mass liberalization of pot laws in the nation’s history.

California, Nevada and Massachusetts join four other states — Oregon, Washington, Alaska and Colorado — to legalize marijuana for recreational use. A similar ballot measure in Maine is leading by just 4,000 votes, less than 1 percent of all votes cast, with most precincts reporting, though the Associated Press has not called that contest.


California Just Got Even Tougher On Guns

Calif. Lt. Gov. Gavin NewsomCalifornians voted Tuesday to pass Proposition 63, a sweeping gun control measure that will bolster the state’s already substantial restrictions on firearms and ammunition.

The ballot initiative, spearheaded by California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom (D), will implement a slew of new gun regulations intended to help prevent mass shootings. The measure bans possession of large-capacity magazines, mandates background checks and permits for ammunition purchases, requires individuals and businesses to report lost or stolen firearms, and makes all firearm thefts felonies regardless of the value of the weapon. The measure will also set up a process for courts to remove guns from people convicted of certain crimes.
