Real Life 'Superheroes' in American Cities It's reported that 300 or 400 US cities have been visited by fantastically costumed citizens calling themselves real life superheroes, patrolling the streets to stop crime or perform good works. They don't claim super powers, but some do carry Tasers and pepper spray. Outside a Seattle courtroom, Ben Fodor ripped off his business suit to reveal the black and gold costume of “Phoenix Jones," a self-appointed real life superhero. Local prosecutors had just declined to press charges against him for pepper-spraying people he thought were fighting outside a bar. Jonathan Martin reports for the Seattle Times .

Is it time to try altering the atmosphere by what's called "geoengineering?" We hear about unintended consequences, international relations… and ethics.
Trump, the GOP and the rule of law Conservatives — and some Republicans — are criticizing the President for "the mess he made" in firing FBI Director James Comey. We hear about a potential successor, the possibility of "obstruction of justice" and the constitutional separation of powers.
