The message has endured outside their house in West t Paul, with block capital letters about 6ft high, since not long after George Floyd, a 46-year-old Black man, was killed by a white police officer just a few miles away in Minneapolis last May.

In the more than a year that I've been writing about Sarah Gonzales-McLinn, who was essentially being held in sexual slavery in Lawrence, Kansas when she killed her rapist at age 19, I've never stopped wondering what the Douglas County jury was thinking back in 2015. Most news reports blandly referred to Hal Sasko, the former employer she drugged and then nearly decapitated in January of 2014, as her 52-year-old roommate. The jury quickly decided that Gonzales-McLinn had killed Sasko in an especially heinous, atrocious or cruel manner, too.

To the editor: Attorney Robert Dunn is mistaken on biblical grounds and misapplies the 1st Amendment in his praise for the U.S. Supreme Court's recent decision on private religious gatherings during the pandemic. He cites the fact that "small-group gatherings have been a part of the Christian faith for two millennia." He claims that denial of the right to continue meeting in groups violates the Constitution.
A Norwegian COVID-19 denier, who threw illegal gatherings, has died from the virus, officials said. Hans Kristian Gaarder, 60, died days after holding two illegal parties on his property. Several guests have since tested positive for the virus and also gave it to close contacts.

“Investments into a high-speed rail system wouldn’t just improve the railroads — automobile traffic could also see some relief.”
“Big cities that are reasonably close together is pretty much a prerequisite for high-speed rail.”
