In a federal court today in Tuscon, Arizona, Jared Loughner received a life sentence without parole for his shooting rampage in January 2011 that killed six people and wounded 13, including then-U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords (D.-Ariz.).
UPDATE 11:20: The networks have announced that Barack Obama will be reelected to a second term, after wrapping up the state of Ohio.
The 2012 presidential election between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney will finally conclude tonight, as voters head to their local polls to choose who gets to sleep in the White House on January 20, 2013. We'll be following all the results very closely, adding the latest news as states close their polls and announce their winners.
Watch this post for updated information—election results, Senate races, ballot measures, battleground-state news—throughout the night:
This morning, much of the East Coast is picking up the pieces after the massive storm known as Hurricane Sandy swept through, leaving millions without power, causing untold economic damage, and killing at least 21 people. Flooding caused largely by enormous, unprecedented storm surges has crippled transportation routes and wreaked havoc on low-lying areas.
In case you missed it—and judging by the ratings, you probably did—the San Francisco Giants finished their World Series sweep of the Detroit Tigers on Sunday night. This year continued a trend in which fewer and fewer people are watching the World Series, especially if it's a four-game sweep
Frankenstorm—a nickname for the potential combination of current Category 1 Hurricane Sandy and other storm systems in the North Atlantic and over the continental United States—is almost here, and for much of the East Coast, that means it’s time to get ready for lots and lots of rain, wind, snow and general meteorological mayhem.
A man drove from Long Island, New York, into Lower Manhattan earlier today in a van he thought was filled with explosives. He parked the van close to the Federal Reserve building, just a few blocks from the World Trade Center, and planned to detonate it using a cell phone from a nearby hotel.
The Triad High School football team in Klamath Falls, Oregon, defeated Elkton High by a score of 106-66, a combined—and astounding—172 points, setting a new state record. It looks more like a basketball score than football, as Triad scored touchdowns on 16 out of 17 possessions. The only time they didn't score was on their final possession, when they had the ball inside the Elkton 1-yard line.
"We were at the 1-foot line and took a knee on the last four plays," Triad coach Kyle Petrik told The Oregonian. "We were hoping to show some class."
On Friday, March 26, 2004, something happened in the South Atlantic Ocean that had never happened before: a hurricane formed. The following night, it made landfall and wreaked incredible havoc. Which is understandable, considering that the town of Torres in southern Brazil had not ever (at least on record) seen a hurricane, leaving its residents rather unprepared for the colossal impact.
Things kicked off around 9 p.m. Eastern in Danville, Kentucky, on the campus of Centre College, with Vice President Joe Biden and Congressman Paul Ryan meeting for their one and only debate during this election campaign
