I hadn't realized how badly the police bungled the investigation.[/QUOTE]

This is quite a good docu-drama of his offences and eventual capture:

Producers announced Monday that Jennings, who won 74 games in a row and claimed the show's "Greatest of All Time" title in a competition last year, will host episodes that air in January.

A long-term host to replace Trebek, [url=https://apnews.com/article/alex-trebek-434c1a66a206d27e8177b118f602ac62]who died of cancer[/url] on Nov. 8, will be named later.

(AP) — Bruce Carver Boynton, a civil rights pioneer from Alabama who inspired the landmark "Freedom Rides" of 1961, died Monday. He was 83.

Former Alabama state Sen. Hank Sanders, a friend of Boynton's, on Tuesday confirmed his passing.

Boynton was arrested 60 years ago for entering the white part of a racially segregated bus station in Virginia and launching a chain reaction that ultimately helped to bring about the abolition of Jim Crow laws in the South. Boynton contested his conviction, and his appeal resulted in a U.S. Supreme Court decision that prohibited bus station segregation and helped inspire the "Freedom Rides."[/quote]

This smells of something that the Trump administration would carry out. There is no proof of it, but there have been rumblings that Trump wants to start a war with Iran before he leaves office.

Yes, of course, but this is usually done by the 'specialists' from the israeli secret service.

If the US tried this, they would screw it up.

Similar British humour we use to say in the north of Portugal: “he went on his turn/time” when someone passes away.
