Get ready for more trains.
It is easier to become a lawyer than to get a green card.
At last month's California gubernatorial debate, Republican hopeful Neel Kashkari praised Gov. Jerry Brown and Attorney General Kamala Harris for using their discretion not to appeal a court ruling that overturned the state's same-sex marriage ban. Kashkari then chided both Democrats for failing to use that same discretion when they appealed the Vergara v. California court decision.

It is now a crime in America to let a 7-year-old boy walk a half mile by himself to the park.
On Oct. 10, two intruders entered Herschel "Bud" Moore's home. They beat up the 94-year-old veteran, ransacked his home and made off with around $2,500 in cash and other stolen items.
