      Just seven weeks before the 1994 Olympic Games, figure skating frontrunner Nancy Kerrigan was brutally clubbed in the knee as she left her practice rink in Detroit. The shocking twist: the assailant was a man who had been hired by the ex-husband and bodyguard of another Olympic hopeful, Tonya Harding. The media couldn’t get enough of the scandal that had all the elements of a Lifetime TV movie: a beautiful figure-skating victim, a brutal attack, and a rival from the wrong side of the tracks.

    • That Viral Video of a Man Punching a Kangaroo Actually Has a Sad Backstory

      Video of an Australian man boxing a kangaroo to save his dog went viral last week, but there is more to the story than meets the eye. Greig Tonkins and his pals were on a boar hunting trip with their friend Kailem Barwick, a 19-year-old who was diagnosed with terminal cancer, hoping to catch an elusive "tonner"—a wild boar that weighs more than 100 kilograms (around 220 pounds), the Daily Mail reported. This Guy Punched a Kangaroo In Face to Save a Dog During the trip, one of the dogs ran into a kangaroo while chasing a scent. Tonkins quickly ran to the dog's aide and intervened, first distracting the kangaroo and causing it to release the dog from a headlock. Thankfully the dog was wearing protective

    • Dear Abby: Ratty clothes on boy may be a ploy

      DEAR ABBY: You missed the mark in your answer to “Mother Doesn’t Know Best” (July 7), whose 8-year-old stepson arrives for visits in old, ill-fitting clothing, even though the father purchases new clothes for him on every visit. I live in Ohio, and the state considers housing, food, electricity, gas and running water as part of the makeup of child support. I know this firsthand. You also need to know if the mother is working and if she contributes to her son’s support. What about other expenses (toys, haircuts, uniforms, etc.)? Part of the problem may be that Stepmom and Dad live across the country and aren’t there to see what exactly goes on day to day. Yes, the little boy shouldn’t be showing

    • Burned woman determined to testify against ex-boyfriend

      Judy Malinowski is too weak now, too ravaged by burns and infection and the toll of 51 surgeries, to make it to the Franklin County Courthouse. But the former Miss New Albany still wants a jury to see her horribly scarred face and bandaged body. She wants to respond to questions as best she can about what happened on Aug. 2, 2015, her mother said, in hopes that the answers send her ex-boyfriend to prison. “She's fighting,” Bonnie Bowes said of her 33-year-old daughter. “She may be holding on for this trial.” Prosecutors expect Malinowski to testify remotely this week — via Skype, from her room at Ohio State University's Wexner Medical Center — against Michael W. Slager. Investigators say he and

    • Ask Amy: Ex-husband wants to issue STD warning

      DEAR AMY: My wife of more than 40 years and I had a mutual parting of ways five years ago. We harbor no searing animosity toward one another and we regularly talk in civil and polite tones. She thought I was going in the wrong direction, but I quickly made an effort to meet a new woman through online dating. I was successful in that venture. My ex joined many different clubs and organizations and eventually fell in with a man whose company she enjoys. Happy ending? I wish. I was happy for my ex, but women I met online told me that this guy continues to occupy a spot in the online dating scene, messaging women about his availability. It is not my business, but I’d also rather not have her contract

    • ‘SNL': John Cena Shows Us How the World Looks Through Donald Trump’s Eyes

      On this week’s “Saturday Night Live,” guest host John Cena portrayed Donald Trump in a point of view sequence that was both haunting and trippy at the same time. The skit played out like something of an “SNL” version of a fever dream, a strange look at the daily life of Donald Trump during his apparent upcoming Presidency. Almost none of the actors in the skit spoke in complete sentences — a signature move for Trump himself — their words coming out as repetitive, incomplete thoughts.

    • GOP introduces plan to massively cut Social Security

      On Thursday, Rep. Sam Johnson, a Republican from Texas and chair of the Social Security subcommittee, introduced legislation to significantly cut Social Security. For most workers, the bill would cut Social Security benefits substantially. As Michael Linden, associate director for tax and budget policy at Center for American Progress, pointed out on Twitter, a letter from Social Security’s Office of the Actuary calculated workers making around $50,000 would see checks shrink by between 11% and 35%.
