    Man arrested for attacking bus driver, passenger with frozen chicken

    CHICAGO — Chicago police have arrested a man who attacked a bus driver and a passenger — with a bag of frozen chicken. Why the fowl play? Because, police say, he was trying to flirt with a woman, and she wasn’t having it. The incident happened last week on a Chicago Transit Authority bus. Police say Caleb Russell, 27, wasn’t happy the woman didn’t respond when he tried to talk to her. So he allegedly started hitting her with the […]

    President Barack Obama on Tuesday cast Donald Trump’s claims of a rigged election as potentially corrosive to American democracy, insisting that the Republican presidential nominee was griping about an invented conspiracy. “You start whining before the game’s even over?” Obama said during a news conference in the White House Rose Garden, adding that Trump’s claim is “not based on facts.” Trump and his surrogates have increasingly claimed the US election system is “rigged,” coming after two lackluster debate performances and […]

    What we’ve learned so far from the hacked emails of Hillary Clinton’s campaign

    The emails hacked from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta have offered an insight into the inner workings of the famously guarded candidate’s operation. And it turns out, they’re not much different than the external ones. Emails posted by WikiLeaks reveal a buttoned-up campaign that analyzes nearly every decision, mirroring Clinton’s reputation as a methodical and tactical politician. And secret transcripts of Clinton’s paid speeches behind closed doors on Wall Street have failed to turn up any positions widely different […]

    We can all agree it’s basically a dream situation to be rescued by a baby elephant, especially if you didn’t really need rescuing in the first place. Instead, you just end up being assured that a baby elephant loves you and wants you to be okay. The Save Elephant Foundation in Chiang Mai, Thailand, captured little Kham Lha racing to the aid of Darrick Thomson, the co-founder of the foundation and one of her favorite people ever. Thomson was calling […]
