      DEAR ABBY: Six years ago, not long after I announced to my family that I was going to be married, my parents decided to divorce because Dad had been cheating on Mom. Because I allowed him to walk me down the aisle, she didn’t attend my wedding. I was extremely hurt by it, but decided to forgive and forget. Unfortunately, my mother could not do that. For the last six years, she has ignored my phone calls and text messages. I have sent cards and gifts for birthdays, Christmas and Mother’s Day and received no acknowledgment (although she does generally send me a generic birthday or Christmas card). We were very close before all this started, and I have tried reaching out to her in every way I know

    • MIT grad fell to his death trying to pull a prank

      He was by all accounts brilliant — except for last week, when he tried to pull off a daring stunt that ended his life. A Massachusetts Institute of Technology graduate died Wednesday when he fell to his death on campus, as he tried to climb the Great Dome — a time-honored tradition of one-upsmanship at the prestigious Cambridge university, authorities said. Computer programmer Nicholas Paggi — a 2015 MIT grad and a Bayville, New Jersey native — was with roommates who are MIT graduate students when he fell. “He came down the side of one of the roofs, came across the front and slipped going back up the other side,” his mother, Helga Paggi, told CBS in Boston from her home in Toms River, New Jersey.

Some people were in Radio City Music Hall, where they’d been since at least 1 pm onward for seven or right hours without food. The finale of the Tribeca Film Festival took place not in Tribeca but at 49th St. and Sixth Avenue, but that’s another story. For the reunion, director Taylor Hackford moderated an austere panel that included: director Francis Ford Coppola, Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, Robert Duvall, Talia Shire, James Caan and Diane Keaton. Marlon Brando is dead. Producer Al Ruddy was in the audience. Former Paramount chief Robert Evans was mentioned– a lot. Peter Bart, who makes it seem like he made

    • Anthony Joshua gets up off canvas to knock out Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley Stadium

      Anthony Joshua stopped Wladimir Klitschko in round 11 of one of the best heavyweight fights in ages in front of a record crowd of 90,000 at Wembley Stadium. IBF world champion Joshua looked to have the edge in the first four rounds before scoring a knockdown in the fifth which brought the entire stadium to its feet. Klitschko actually finished the round strong enough to potentially cancel out the 10-8 score a knockdown usually brings, before dropping the champ himself in the sixth – the first time Joshua had been put on the canvas.

      Thousands of people across the U.S. are marching on President Donald Trump’s hundredth day in office to demand action on climate change. In Washington, D.C., large crowds on Saturday made their way down Pennsylvania Avenue in sweltering heat. They planned to encircle the White House.

      The 2017 NFL draft is in the books, and now it’s time to unfairly give out way-too-early grades that will undoubtedly enrage some of you. Most of the truly critical grades this year are reserved for teams that panicked to get quarterbacks in a draft where the position was panned by many. In the first round, there was a run on quarterbacks, and even though the Cardinals need one, they stood at No. 12 and took linebacker Haason Reddick.
