Debating Johnson’s recent promotion to the Lakers’ president of basketball operations with co-host Jon “Stugotz” Weiner on his ESPN radio show Thursday morning, Le Batard sounded dumbfounded by the Lakers’ faith in their former star who, according to the talking head, hasn’t proven himself in any of his careers outside of basketball. “What you’ve got here though, is a testament to the power of fame. And a testament to the power of a modicum of charm,” Le Batard said. “Because Magic Johnson is charming.

    • Water released from Shasta Dam's top gates for first time in nearly two decades

      For the first time in almost two decades, water was released Thursday from the topmost gates of the dam impounding Lake Shasta, California's largest reservoir, marking another milestone in what is shaping up to be the state's wettest year on record. The release lasted only 15 minutes and was only a test to confirm that the gates were functioning properly in case they need to be used at a later time, according to the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. The gates operated as expected, the bureau’s spokesman Louis Moore said. With the reservoir at 135% of its historical average for this time of year and nearly 93% of its capacity, dam engineers were releasing billions of gallons of water to make room for incoming flows from the surrounding foothills and Sierra Nevada, according to the bureau.

    • Wolf Blitzer grills Rep. Martha Blackburn on her claim that outsiders flooded her town hall

      Those Republicans who dutifully opted to meet with their constituents this week have gotten an earful from people angry about President Trump, his tax returns, the push to repeal ObamaCare and other issues. Many of these lawmakers, along with the Trump administration, explained the anger by claiming that the people packing town hall events are paid or otherwise organized leftist agitators from outside their districts. Democrats tried a similar defense in 2009 when their town hall events were flooded with angry conservatives, and they paid a steep cost in the 2010 midterm elections. In 2017, many of the people filling up the Republican town halls are "first-timers who echo in passion, though not
