At a ceremony in Hawaii on Wednesday to mark the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, U.S. Pacific Command Commander Adm. Harry Harris made a remark that was clearly about the quarterback. “You can bet that the men and women we honor today – and those who died that fateful morning 75 years ago – never took a knee and never failed to stand whenever they heard our national anthem being played,” Harris said, according to the Associated Press.

    • Ask Amy: Child victim faces abuser at family events

      Dear Amy: I suffered regular sexual abuse at the hands of a cousin when I was between the ages of 5 and 8. He is eight years older than me. I actually go years without thinking about it, but when it comes back to me I feel angry and in pain. I’m 46 years old now. Over the past few years I have shared the secret with my sisters and a few close friends, but I will never tell my entire family. It would destroy my mother. Today I will head to my uncle’s funeral. My cousin will be there. I do not know what to do when I have to see him. He is a huge, charismatic man. Everyone loves him. I feel like an insignificant blip on the radar within the family. In the past I have avoided him, but he will approach

    • This weather pattern spells big trouble next week across the U.S.

      The Siberian Express will ride again next week, as frigid air pushes across much of the U.S. with temperatures in some places dropping to as much as 50 degrees Fahrenheit below average for this time of year.  The cold will come courtesy of two main weather features — a wobble in the upper level polar vortex that will pull cold air out of Siberia, Alaska and Canada,  While this will be a headline-grabbing event, with temperatures remaining below zero Fahrenheit for the daytime high across the northern Rockies, parts of the Plains and Midwest, it is not likely to equal or beat the severity of the January 2014 Polar Vortex event.  SEE ALSO: Polar vortex-type cold wave could freeze parts of U.S.

    • Tina Fey Has One Answer For Why Hillary Clinton Lost The Election

      Like many voters and political experts around the country, Tina Fey has been trying to figure out why Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election. Strategists may point to campaign mistakes while others may discuss Clinton’s likability factor, but Fey offered a different point of view entirely. “I promised myself I wouldn’t get up here today and talk about the election, because when I get written up in Breitbart, I want it to be because they’re mad that I’m making an all-female Hitler biopic,” said Fey at the Hollywood Reporter’s annual Women in Entertainment breakfast, in reference to the ultra-conservative website. “But I have to say, I think the real reason that Hillary lost ― and it’s the thing that people are afraid to talk about ― not enough celebrity music videos urging people to vote,” she continued through laughs.

    • Family Has ‘Many Questions’ After Teen Son Shot at School for Allegedly Attacking Others with Knives

      The family of a teen shot Wednesday after he allegedly pulled two large knives on students at his Nevada high school is now reportedly questioning the officer’s use of force on the 14-year-old. The teen was taken to a local hospitalized and listed in critical condition after being shot at Hug High School in Reno, Nevada, by a school district police officer, according to authorities. “There are many questions to be answered as to what happened and what could have been done to avoid the use of lethal force,” David Houston told NBC News in a statement.

    • The dog was really cold, and the deputy’s car was so warm. And the door was open ...

      The Tuolumne County, Calif., Sheriff’s Department may have found another potential candidate for its K-9 unit. A lost dog jumped into a deputy’s patrol car early Wednesday morning to escape the freezing cold, the sheriff’s department said in a post on its Facebook page. At around 1 a.m., Deputy Jon Hammell spotted a suspicious vehicle in the Tuolumne Market parking lot in Tuolumne City. Hammell left his driver’s door open and walked up to the vehicle so he could speak with the occupants. When he returned to his patrol car, he found a black labrador sitting in his passenger seat. The dog, named Ruger, had information listed on his collar. The dog fell asleep in the warm patrol car as his owners

    • Fake news gunman incident at Comet Ping Pong pizzeria, in D.C. (9 photos)

      Edgar Maddison Welch, who has admitted to being the gunman who opened fire inside of the Washington, D.C., pizzeria Comet Ping Pong on Sunday, expressed regret in a new interview with the New York Times . "I just wanted to do some good and went about it the wrong way," he told the paper Wednesday, speaking via videoconference from an old hospital building next to a city jail. No one was injured by the gunfire, but Welch's actions drew national attention because he was motivated by a fringe conspiracy theory about the pizzeria. Police say Welch told them he wanted to "self-investigate" the theory, which purported that Comet is the center of a child-sex ring involving Hillary Clinton and her campaign chief.
