• As Trump delivers racially charged insults, most Republicans stay silent

    The president of the United States had just lobbed another racially charged insult - this time calling his former top African American adviser a "dog" - but Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, had no interest in talking about it. "I've got more important things on my mind, so I really don't have a comment on that," said the Senate's No. 2 Republican, chuckling at the question. Has President Donald Trump ever said anything on race that made Cornyn uncomfortable? "I think the most important thing is to pay attention to what the president does, which I think has been good for the country," the senator demurred. What about his constituents back home - are they concerned? "I know you have to ask these questions

  • TSA says air marshals don’t follow ‘ordinary’ travelers. Some ordinary travelers beg to differ

    Taylor Usry’s routine work trip in July began like any other. She chose a comfy dress and sandals to ease her travel anxiety, and arrived early at the airport, where she passed through security - her body scanned, searched, and patted, her belongings swabbed and sent through an X-ray machine. Usry, a 39-year-old social media manager for an arts-and-crafts company, recalls buying a chicken biscuit and a Diet Dr Pepper while she waited in the terminal for her flight to Florida for a meeting at the Home Shopping Network. She had no idea she was being watched during her humble meal - watched the entire time, in fact. A team of armed federal air marshals was shadowing her every move - recording whether

  • Jury convicts man for sexually assaulting a woman on a plane as his wife sat next to him

    It was a late-night flight from Las Vegas, and the woman rested her head on the window as the plane neared Detroit. She was startled awake by the man in the middle seat next to her. His hand was down her unbuttoned pants, and her shirt was undone. The 22-year old woman fled to the back of the plane to alert flight attendants. But first she had to get past two obstacles: Prabhu Ramamoorthy, the man in the middle seat, and his wife in the aisle seat - an arm's length away from a chill-inducing Jan. 3 incident later described in court. A federal jury convicted Ramamoorthy, 35, of sexual abuse on the Spirit Airlines flight. Ramamoorthy, an Indian national in the United States on a work visa, faces up to life in prison.

The crowd went crazy, and it was difficult to know if they were cheering the $2 million bejeweled bra Ribeiro was wearing or the Brazilian beauty herself. By most measures, the Nov. 20 extravaganza in Shanghai, China, was a success. Ribeiro and a dozen of her supermodel pals were at their sexy best in an estimated $12 million production that company executives arranged to have telecast around the world. But the world yawned.
