Prop. 60 calls for condoms in porn Among the long list of ballot measures Californians will vote on this November is one that would put more restrictions on the porn industry. Proposition 60 would require actors in adult films to use condoms during sex scenes.

Trump plays scolder-in-chief with NATO allies At the opening of NATO’s dramatic new headquarters in Brussels today, President Trump acknowledged that Article 5 — promising that “an attack on one nation is an attack on all” -- has only been invoked one time: in the aftermath of September 11.
