SCoFL has decided that the governor can remove elected officials and appoint a replacement without judicial review so long as he plausibly allege any job deficiency.

e: In the present case, he indefinitely suspended a democratic party state attorney who was not slamming people for minor drug offenses.

Not to minimize this but that comes to 6 per 100,000 crossings for the US border and 150 per 100,000 for the Berlin Wall.

Looks like Sandy Hook parent's lawyers got what they wanted - Jones is likely to lose ownership of Infowars in liquidation. Infowars won't go away, but he won't directly own it anymore.

A while back, someone in Arlington was firing a flare gun from their house. When police came by to investigate, shots were fired from the inside and the house blew up. There were lots of videos from afar, but new today is the dashcam footage plus the reason: the dude lit two 5-gallon and a 25-gallon drum of gasoline on fire in the basement:

I thought it was less that they were disqualified and more allowed to nope out when their address was found despite their name not being given.

Yep, that juror was immediately DQed and an alternate came in. I believe the judge one-by-one, independently interviewed each juror to find out who heard about the attempted bribe and one more juror got kicked too.

IIRC the articles said they had 5 alternates which seemed like a lot but I guess they knew what they were doing.

Apollo 8 astronaut Bill Anders died in a plane crash in Washington state this afternoon. He’s the one who took the famous Earthrise photo.

Four. Buzz Aldrin, David Scott, Charlie Duke, and Harrison Schmitt. Schmitt being the youngest at 88.

:goonsay: Anders orbited the moon but never walked on it, so that number technically hasn't changed.

It is a statistical near-certainty that they're all going to punch their tickets in the next decade or so, but "plane crash" is a hell of a way to rewrite the script.

E: James Lovell and Fred Haise are the still-living "went to the moon but didn't land" club

E2: I guess that makes Lovell the last person living who has been to the moon twice, since John Young died in 2018

Astronaut talk made me want to give a quick plug to The Space Above Us podcast. The host does an episode for every crewed American mission to space, and talks about the astronauts, what they did, and other interesting stories about NASA and human space flight. If you have any hint of interest in NASA, definitely check it out.

Def gonna check that out.

Two DVD series I can recommend:

When We Left Earth
IMAX Space Collection

Lots of cool original footage on both. The first is more recent and covers the full history of the space program (up to the 2000s) and the latter were produced during the 80s/90s and focus on the shuttle program.

Whoa! A buddy works on the islands in emergency services & had texted earlier they had a plane crash but he hadn’t known at the time it was an astronaut.
