Good evening:

(1) We begin on a deadly serious note, with an entry in the we-live-in-an-out-of-control-police-state department. We have a graphic video of officers from the Albuquerque Police Department murdering a homeless man who was camping without a permit. Here’s the disturbing helmet-cam video with commentary by the Young Turks.

In the don’t-bother-to-ask department, don’t bother to ask if they have been charged with murder.

(2) In the search for #MH370, we have a report from Australia that two of the four pings detected by searchers in the south Indian Ocean were too weak to have come from black boxes and probably came from marine animals tagged with beacon locators.

(3) In the turn-your-other-cheek department, we have Magic Johnson’s classy response to Donald Sterling’s racist, incredibly mean-spirited and disgusting rant against him by saying, “We’ve got to pray for the man. I think we need to get him some help.”

(4) Finally, in the comic-relief department and man-does-not-live-by-bread-alone department, watch a Congressman hard at work as Representative Joe Garcia (D-FL) eats his ear wax. I. Kid. You. Not.

Let’s see your comments to these and other stories and please let us know if you like this new feature that we are trying out this week.

In case you missed it, here’s last night’s post.

And, if you like what we do, please don’t forget to make a donation.
