I don't think it's easy to take a single story from the pages of aviation history and call it the 'best' or 'most interesting' because the competition is fierce, but the doomed crew of the World War Two B24 Liberator 'Lady Be Good' ranks for the title if any do. The crew became hopelessly lost and because they were flying at night, they ultimately came to believe they were over the ocean, just about to run out of fuel, and this is what led to their decision to bail out.
FACT: Some Judges can and will commit crimes, the problem is exposing them and getting them prosecuted. When someone exposes a judge the first thing they do is attack the person who reports them. Police often side with the judge because they can’t be objective due to working under that judge. This allows unethical judges to commit crimes, abuse victims and stay immune to prosecution.
It's hard to say exactly what convicted Diane Downs in the shooting of her children, a terrible event that played out on a dark night in 1983. If one word plays into the scenario over and over, it is "emotion" and that is indeed a raw, powerful determiner of guilt in many cases, sometimes appropriately, sometimes not.

So, a slutty Israeli TV show features a chick in a skimpy bikini mocking Jesus Christ by showing him as a stupid looking monkey hanging on a cross. Then using the 'f' word, she proceeds to tell Jewish viewers that Christians, we 'goyam', are 'dangerous' toward Jews. From there, it gets much worse.

Another nail in the coffin of OMMP has been struck. The freedom for patients to grow their own medicine in Oregon is facing another hindering factor, restricting their ability to simply grow up to six plants without express permission of their property owner. Should small medical home grows be held to the same standards as large recreational production facilities? It seems so, according to the information distributed by OHA/OLCC.

Dr. Fiona Hill, the White House’s former top expert on Russia, warned that Republicans loyal to Trump must stop pushing the “fictional narrative perpetrated and propagated by the Russian security services themselves that Ukraine interfered in the 2016 presidential election because it plays into Vladimir Putin’s hand.” This claim that Ukraine not Russia interfered in our 2016 presidential election was reportedly started by Maria Zakharova, a top official in the Russian foreign ministry.

I get really fired up when I consider the Marines that I served with on the flightline at El Toro, dying and suffering from cancer. The idea of their kids and even grandkids suffering diseases borne from the toxic chemicals dumped for half a century on the Marine base and then absorbed by our bodies and passed down to theirs, is even more sinister. Knowing that I lived and breathed this toxic contamination for over two years makes me feel dirty in a way that I never knew before, it is an inherited liability that we didn't ask for but still possess.

Tragedy and war-inspired Post Traumatic Stress Disorder can meet like a head on crash when the nation's care providers at the Veterans Administration, notorious for lies and deceit, deny our combat veterans the care they need. This story of Army Sergeant Nicholas Horner's alleged deadly, senseless shootings in Altoona, Pennsylvania April 6th, is possibly the most tragic I have ever reported, and if it isn't, it is among the very worst.
